§ Mr. Pavitt
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what is the present weekly wage of a man who 355W has served for 15 years in the London ambulance service at the present time; and what were the rates prevailing in 1974.
§ Sir George Young
Average weekly earnings of a qualified ambulance man were £56.09 in September 1974. The offer recently made by the management side of the Ambulancemen's Whitley Council effective from 1 January 1981, together with an outstanding increase in London weighting, could increase current average earnings of £156 by about £10 per week.
