§ Mr. J. Freeman
asked the Minister of National Insurance the number of temporary assistant inspectors in his Department currently being declared redundant; the grounds for such redundancy; and to what extent these changes are leading to a reduction in the staff of his Department 84W employed in administering the National Insurance scheme.
§ Mr. Turton
The answer to the first part of the Question is 58. As the result of recent economies in staff there has been a reduction of over 100 in the executive grade to which these officers belong.
