Slaughters have usually refused to disclose profits to anyone - the league tables generally rank Slaughters highly, but never (that I recall) state their profit per partner; it is generally assumed to be high though. The statement that "Profit and length of time as a partner are the only factors that come into play" shows it is a conventional lockstep structure; if there is a 'pay' disparity between male and female at partnership level it therefore reflects promotion decisions made 10/20/30 years ago, not the current position.

Anyway, including the self employed in the gender statutory reports is meaningless. It appears that MPs don't understand the difference between owning a business and working for one: sadly more evidence that our rulers haven't a clue what they are doing.
