HC Deb 09 July 1962 vol 662 c104W
Sir D. Kaberry

asked the Minister of Health how many civil servants, established or permanent, and temporary, respectively, were employed in Ministry of Health departments on 1st March, 1951, and 1st March, 1962, or on the nearest available dates; and what were the totals, respectively, of their salaries and wages paid as on those dates.

Mr. Powell

The total staff was 6,426 on 1st April, 1951, and 5,165 on 1st April, 1962. The cost of salaries and wages was £3,613,055 in the year ending 31st March, 1951, and £5,298,083 in the year ending 31st March, 1962. I regret that it is not possible, without undue labour, to give separate figures for permanent and temporary staff.
