HC Deb 05 February 1992 vol 203 c176W
Mr. Steinberg

To ask the Secretary of State for Employment if he will list the average hourly(a) rates of pay and (b) average number of hours worked weekly by private security guards.

Mr. Forth

It is estimated from the April 1991 new earnings survey that average hourly earnings excluding overtime for "security guards and related occupations" were £5.07, and average total hours were 48.9 per week, of which 7.1 were overtime. The figures relate to full-time employees on adult rates whose pay was not affected by absence.
