§ Mr. George Rodgers
asked the Secretary of State for Employment when the Royal Commission on the Distribution of Income and Wealth will publish its next report.
§ Mr. Booth
The Royal Commission has published today as Cmnd 6999 its third report on the standing reference. The Government welcome this report, which is the fifth to be published by the Commission. In addition to presenting updated statistics, the report covers significant new ground with the results of some of the research projects undertaken by the Commission. It will do much to advance our understanding of the distribution of income and wealth.
