HC Deb 05 April 1982 vol 21 cc231-2W
Mr. Austin Mitchell

asked the Secretary of State for Employment, further to his written reply dated 25 March, Official Report, c. 404, concerning the earnings of adult farm workers, whether he will publish in the Official Report the corresponding figures as a percentage of adult male workers in manufacturing.

Mr. Alison

The following table sets out the available information for employees in England and Wales, except where otherwise stated:

"Hourly Earnings—Hours of Work, x-1980" published by Eurostat. Data on consumer prices can be obtained from the OECD's "Main Economic Indicators". The comments on international comparability given in the previous reply still apply.
