HC Deb 05 July 1962 vol 662 cc77-8W
34. Sir D. Kaberry

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer how many civil servants, established and temporary, respectively, were employed in his Department on 1st March, 1951, and 1st March, 1962, or the nearest available dates; and what were the totals, respectively, of their salaries and wages as paid on those dates.

Sir E. Boyle

On 1st April, 1951, there were 1,356 civil servants employed in the Treasury and on 1st April, 1962, there were 1,033 established and 324 temporary civil servants making a total of 1,357.

The cost of wages and salaries for the year ending 31st March, 1951, was £915,523 and for the year ending 31st March, 1962, the cost was £1,771,712.

It is impossible to show separately the cost of established and temporary staff; and the available records for 1951 do not differentiate between the numbers of established and temporary staff.
