§ Mr. Dewar
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will give the average weekly gross earnings in Scotland at the latest date for which records are available of (i) a full-time manual male employee in the manufacturing sector, (ii) a full-time manual female employee in the service sector and (iii) a part-time female manual employee in the service sector.
§ Mr. Younger
The average weekly gross earnings in April 1985 of employees in employment on adult rates, not affected by absence was as follows:
£ i. full-time manual male employees in manufacturing industries 176 ii. full-time manual female employees in service industries 92
These estimates are based on the 1985 New Earnings Survey and will be included in the Part E report to be published in January 1985. No figure is available for part-time female manual employees in service industries.
