21. Mr. Snow

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government and Minister for Welsh Affairs if he will state the national average in respect of all local planning authorities, and of his own Department, of planning staff shortages according to establishments.

There are at present six vacancies for planning officers in the Department against a complement of 66. My right hon. Friend is not in possession of the information for which the hon. Member asks in respect of the staffs of local planning authorities who are, of course, independent employers.
