asked the Minister of Town and Country Planning what appointments have been made by the Hemel Hempstead Development Corporation; and what are the salaries and duties of officials so appointed.
§ Mr. Silkin
I have arranged with the Corporations that the creation of higher posts should have my prior approval and I am circulating in the OFFICIAL REPORT a list of the posts that have been filled. I cannot give the corresponding information in relation to junior appointments. While these are subject to general budgetary control, they do not require my prior approval, since it is not my policy to seek to control the detailed or day-to-day activities of the Corporations.
§ Mr. Walker-Smith
Is the appointment of officials and employees by these Development Corporations being confined to the necessary works which are being carried out, in the light of the speech of the Minister for Economic Affairs on 23rd October?
