§ 62. Mr. Jack Thompson
asked the Secretary of State for Employment what research his Department has conducted into the consequences for employment of lowering average rates of pay.
§ Mr. Gummer
Recent examples of work on the determinants of employment, including the link between pay and jobs, are externally-commissioned work at the centre for labour economics on the determinants of employment in British manufacturing industry and an internal study of relative pay and employment of young people. A fuller list of the research and publications is set out in the annual report on research of this Department.
