HC Deb 30 October 1996 vol 284 c163W
Mr. Frank Field

To ask the Secretary of State for Social Security what plans he has to produce a report on female workers similar to the one entitled "Male Earnings Mobility in the Lifetime Labour Market Database". [1129]

Mr. Burt

Analyses of earnings movements among women will be undertaken as part of the Department's current programme of work from the lifetime labour market database. Analyses of female earners were previously hindered by a lack of comprehensive data identifying women who take a career break to look after children; this problem has been largely removed in the most recent version of the lifetime labour market database.
