§ Mr. TURTON
asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury what was the increase in the number of civil servants employed on 1st July, 1931, as compared with the number employed on 1st June, 1929; and whether he can give any reason for such increase?
§ Mr. PETHICK-LAWRENCE
The hon. Member will find the information he requires in the statements rendered quarterly to the House showing the civil staffs employed in Government Departments. The return for 1st July is not yet available, but I am sending him a copy of the return for 1st April last, Command Paper 3898 of 1931.
