asked the Secretary of State for Employment if he will circulate in the Official Report a table showing the starting pay for an executive officer of the Civil Service and a journalist based in London in 1950, 1960, 1970 and the years 1972 to date.

Relevant information about the salaries of Civil Service executive officers is given in the following table. I regret that no comparable information is available for journalists.
