asked the Secretary of State for Employment by what amount wages and salaries would rise if all full-time employed persons had £6 per week added to their wages for the year from 1st August 1975; how much of this would be paid to those earning more, and how much to those earning less, than the current average wage; and how many persons there are in each category.
There are about 18 million full-time employees in employment in Great Britain. An extra £6 per week to each of these would increase wages and salaries by about £5,600 million in the year from August 1975. Of this total, the 10½ million full-time employees earning below the current average would receive about £3,300 million and the remaining 7½ million would receive about £2,300 million.
asked the Secretary of State for Employment whether he proposes that those whose present income is less than £6 a week below £8,500 will be allowed an increase up to £8,500.
The limits mentioned in the White Paper (Cmnd. 6151) provide that anyone earning less than £8,500 a year is eligible for a maximum increase
