HC Deb 11 November 1952 vol 507 c20W
65. Colonel Gomme-Duncan

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland why it is necessary for him to employ a staff of 255 to enable the State Management Districts, Scotland, to sell liquor which cost £240,000.

Mr. Henderson Stewart

This staff includes 114 part-time employees. It is employed in running, supervising and managing 15 hotels, 13 public houses, four off-sales shops, one restaurant and three bottling stores. I do not consider it excessive.
