The gender pay gap (as measured by the median hourly pay) narrowed between 2005 and 2006 to its lowest value since records began and it is reflected through the fact that the median hourly rate for men went up 3.7 per cent to £11.71, while the rate for women increased by 4.2 per cent to £10.24, as published by National Statistics.
