§ Sir F. SANDERSON
asked the President of the Board of Trade the total number of administrative staff employed in the Surplus Stores, etc., Liquidation Department; and when it is anticipated that this Department will be filially wound up?
§ Mr. McNEILL
The total non industrial staff employed by the Surplus 263W Stores Liquidation Department at present number 112, and will, it is hoped, be reduced to 91 by the 1st of next month. Every effort is being made to complete the work, including the disposal of unsold factories, etc., but it is not possible at present to give a definite date for the winding up of the Department.
