§ 37. Mr. Palmer
asked the Minister of Fuel and Power what provision he proposes to make for those present members of the technical staff of his Department's Fuel Advisory Service who apply for appointments with the new Fuel Advisory Company but are not accepted.
§ Mr. Geoffrey Lloyd
It is hoped that most of the existing staff will be offered appointments with the new company. Those who apply but are not accepted will be considered, according to their qualifications, for reallocation to other Government Departments.
§ Mr. Palmer
Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that the whole of the staff 21 have been left in a complete state of uncertainty as to their future? Is not this once again evidence of the folly of breaking up this well-established Government service?
