§ 2. Mr. MATHERS
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland the total number of civil servants of all grades employed in the various Departments in Edinburgh and the total amount of their emoluments for a year?
§ Sir A. SINCLAIR
The latest figures readily available relate to 1st April, 1930, when the number of Civil Service staffs serving in Edinburgh—both of Scottish Departments and of Departments whose jurisdiction extends throughout Great Britain, but excluding industrial employés—was 6,355 and the total amount of their emoluments (including overtime and allowances) for a year was £1,643,000. The corresponding figures at the present time are estimated at 6,500 and £1,500,000.
