§ Mr. David Howell
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer, further to his replies to the hon. Member for Norfolk, North (Mr. Howell) Official Report, 26th April, c. 305, if he will publish approximate estimates of the pecentage inceases in earnings between the years cited in his reply for each of the categories of household and earning level for which figures are given.
§ Mr. Golding
I have been asked to reply.
For each category of household, all the estimates assumed increases in earnings of about 71 per cent. between 1973–74 and 1976–77 and about 9 per cent. between 1976–77 and 1977–78.
