§ 53. Miss Boothroyd
asked the Secretary of State for Employment how many part-time workers earn less than £2.50 per hour.
§ Mr. Peter Bottomley
Comprehensive estimates of the number of part-time employees earning less than £2.50 an hour are not available. The most recent available information relates to part-time female employees on adult rates covered by pay-as-you-earn schemes. The relative numbers of those earning less than £2.50 per hour and less than £2.60 per hour in April 1984 are shown in table 172 of "New Earnings Survey", part F. A copy is in the Library.
