HC Deb 15 November 1985 vol 86 c301W
Ms. Clare Short

asked the Paymaster General if he will list wages council rates and conditions for all ages and categories of workers currently in force.

Mr. Peter Bottomley

Wages councils determine minimum pay rates and other conditions of service for many different categories of workers and for a variety of circumstances. For this reason, it is not practicable to publish in theOfficial Report the statutory minimum rates, which are set out in full in the orders made by the councils. Copies of the wages orders are available in the Library.
