HC Deb 21 November 1984 vol 68 cc195-6W
Mr. Barry Jones

asked the Secretary of State for Employment what is the average adult wage for (a) Wales, (b) England and (c) the United Kingdom at the latest date for which figures are available.

Mr. Peter Bottomley

The latest figures on the average earnings of full-time adult employees working a full week relate to April 1984. Separate details for Wales, for England and for Great Britain are given in tables 12 and 13 of "New Earnings Survey 1984, Part A", a copy of which is in the Library. Comparable 1984 figures for the United Kingdom are not yet available.
