HC Deb 12 December 1977 vol 941 c76W
Mr. Pattie

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will list for each year since 1970 the percentage increase or decrease in real take-home pay of the average industrial worker in each member country of the EEC, the United States, Canada and Japan.

Mr. Joel Barnett

I regret that this information cannot be provided without a disproportionate expenditure of time and resources.

Mr. Lawson

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer, further to the Written Answer to the hon. Member for Blaby, Official Report, 30th November, columns 259–60, what is the explanation of the apparent 11¼ per cent. increase on the real weekly take-home pay of the average married man between March and June of 1970.

Mr. Robert Sheldon

I will let the hon. Member have a reply as soon as possible.
