HC Deb 09 December 1920 vol 135 cc2428-9
99. Major COPE

asked the Minister of Transport the number of Ministry of Transport offices, if any, situated in the provinces; where they are situated; the number of the staff employed by each: and the estimated anual cost of each?


If the hon. and gallant Member will allow me, I think it will be convenient, as the reply is rather lengthy and contains a tabular statement, to print it in the OFFICIAL REPORT.


What is the total amount?


The total amount, including the Irish grant, is £32,073, of which the Irish grant is £16,138. Those figures are subject to some footnotes, which will appear in the OFFICIAL REPORT.

The following is the reply referred to:

Camp, Canterbury, Northallerton, and Chester.

The cost of this staff is recovered from other Government Departments for whom road construction and other work is performed.

The above particulars do not include the Caledonian and Crinan canals nor the harbours under the control of the Ministry.
