HC Deb 26 November 1975 vol 901 c212W
Mr. Madden

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what has been the size of development of the social wage in each OECD country, where this information is available, over the last 10 years, in absolute levels of expenditure broken down for each main item, and as a percentage of GDP and per capita of the population.

Mr. Joel Barnett

Figures comparable with those used in estimating the United Kingdom social wage are not available for other OECD countries.
