§ 63. Mr. MALLALIEU
asked the Minister of Agriculture the total number of posts established as the result of the Agricultural Marketing Acts; and the number of these posts carrying a salary of £500 a year or more?
§ Mr. ELLIOT
The addition which has been made to the Ministry's staff for the purpose of carrying out duties under the Agricultural Marketing Acts, 1931–1933, including work in connection with committees set up in accordance with the provisions of these Acts, is approximately 65, including clerks, typists and messengers. Of these posts 13 carry an inclusive salary (i.e., inclusive of bonus) of £500 or more.
§ Mr. MALLALIEU
Has my right hon. Friend any information as to the number of posts not in the Ministry set up under these Acts?
