§ Mr. Barry Jones
asked the Secretary of State for Wales if he will estimate the number of workers in Wales who earn less than £3 per hour and the percentage which they constitute of the total Welsh work force.
§ Mr. Peter Walker
An estimate of the number of workers is not available, but results of the 1986 new earnings survey indicate that 28.6 per cent. of full-time adult workers in Wales whose earnings were not affected by absence earn less than £3 per hour.
