Latest figures show that during the 12 months to April 2002 women working full- time earned 81.2% of a man’s salary compared with 81.5% in the previous year, according to research by Incomes Data Services.

Closer examination of the figures reveals that the gap is widest in the top notch of salaries and narrowest for those earning the lowest wages.

Most notably, in the executive positions of treasurers and company financial managers, females earn just 60% of their male counterparts.

In terms of regions, the pay gap is widest in London, where the concentration of male managers is at its highest, while the greatest pay equality is in Wales.
