HC Deb 07 May 1956 vol 552 c75W
58. Mr. Lewis

asked the Minister of Pensions and National Insurance to give details of the 12 additional staff employed by his Department between 1st April, 1955, and 1st April, 1956; the work undertaken by these 12 employees; and the salary or wage scale in each instance.

Mr. Boyd-Carpenter

During the period in question there was a reduction of 917 in the staff of my Department. The latter part of the hon. Member's Question does not therefore arise.
