§ 15. Sir HARRY BRITTAIN
asked the Minister of Pensions what was the number of the staff of his Department employed at the issue office at Acton on the 1st January in the years 1924, 1925, and 1926, respectively?
§ Major TRYON
The staff of the various branches of my Department housed at Acton numbered 3,856 on the 1st January, 1924; 4,120 on the 1st January, 1925; and 3,358 on the 1st January, 1926.
§ Mr. HARRIS
As it becomes possible to reduce this staff, do those whose services are no longer required have a chance of serving in other Departments as vacancies arise?
