HC Deb 04 December 1956 vol 561 c104W
63. Mr. Redhead

asked the Minister of Labour whether he will now make a further statement as to staffing economies in his Department; and, in particular, whether he will state the number by which the staffs of local offices are to be reduced and in what manner it is proposed to effect such reduction.

Mr. Iain Macleod

The economies which I outlined in the Answer I gave to the hon. Member on 24th July have so far resulted in a saving of about 900 staff of whom 700 were at local offices. It is estimated that a further saving of about 1,100 will be made by the end of 1957 including about 600 at local offices. These reductions are the result of the various measures I have already announced.
