HC Deb 21 February 1984 vol 54 c469W
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.
