HC Deb 05 July 1949 vol 466 c150W
Mr. P. Morris

asked the Minister of Town and Country Planning (1) what is the number of personnel employed by the Central Land Board; and the annual total salary of the Board's personnel;

(2) what is the annual overall cost of the Central Land Board to the State, including hire and purchase of premises, etc.

Mr. Silkin

The Central Land Board shares with the War Damage Commission a common staff, and if my hon. Friend will refer to the Estimates under the respective Votes he will find full details of the financial provision made for salaries, etc., and for allied services. (Class V., 12, pages 116 and 117, in the case of the Central Land Board; and Class IX., 8, pages 81 to 83, for the War Damage Commission.) No precise allocation of staff and premises between the two jobs is possible since for economy reasons both are interlocked at all levels and the force allocated to either necessarily fluctuates.
