HC Deb 25 October 1973 vol 861 cc595-6W
Mr. Sillars

asked the Secretary of State for Employment what was the earnings gap in manufacturing between Scotland and the United Kingdom, expressed as a percentage, in 1972 and at the latest date for which information is available.

Mr. Chichester-Clark

I regret that there is no later information than that contained in the reply to the hon. Member on 15th February—[Vol. 850, c.437]. However, further data will become available in the results of the 1973 New Earnings Survey, when the tables giving an industrial analysis within regions are published, probably later this year.
