HC Deb 02 November 1989 vol 159 c287W
Mr. Flynn

To ask the Secretary of State for Wales what are the total numbers of(a) male and (b) female workers in (1) Gwent and (2) the rest of Wales who are in receipt of wages below the wages council's recommended levels.

Mr. Peter Walker

The information is not available in the form requested. In 1988, wages inspectors identified 897 workers in Wales who had been paid less than the statutory minimum due. Inspectorate records do not identify whether workers are male or female. Statistics are not compiled for areas smaller than Wales as a whole.
