HC Deb 08 February 1974 vol 868 c474W
Mr. Meacher

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what was the percentage rise in the real net pay, at October 1972 prices, of the average-paid manual worker during the stages 1–2 year.

Mr. Nott

Real net pay will depend upon the recipient's tax position, and this in turn will depend on his family's circumstances.
