§ 52. Mr. W. J. Brown
asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury what is the number of civil servants now employed; how many of this total number or un-established; and how many of the un-established are war-time appointees.
§ The Financial Secretary to the Treasury (Mr. Assheton)
The most recent date for which exact figures are available is 1st October, 1943. With my hon. Friend's permission I will circulate these in the OFFICIAL REPORT. I regret that no figures are available showing how many of the un-established staff are war-time appointees, but I am also circulating the total figures for 1st April, 1939 (the last date before the outbreak of war for which figures exist), from which it will be seen that the very great majority of the un-established staff have been appointed since that date.
§ Following are the figures:
|1st April, 1939||287,290||84,988|
|1st October, 1943||212,145||474,722|
|1st April, 1939||31,346||208,835|
|1st October, 1943||35,866||691,138|
§ Note: The figures relate to whole-time staff only
