§ 72. Mr. R. MORRISON
asked the Minister of Pensions how many employés of the Ministry have been dismissed during the present year; and how many are at present under notice.
§ The MINISTER of PENSIONS (Major Tryon)
I assume that by dismissals the hon. Member refers to discharges owing to redundancy caused by the shrinkage in the volume of work in the Ministry. Apart from subordinate domestic staff, the number of employés (male and female) so discharged since 1st January, 1928, is 332, and 23 are at present under notice.
