HC Deb 18 July 1962 vol 663 c51W
59. Sir D. Kaberry

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

Mr. Thorneycroft

The figures for civil servants employed by the Ministry of Defence as at 1st April in each of the two years are:

(a) 1951
(i) Established 495
(ii) Unestablished 527
(b) 1962
(i) Established 663
(ii) Unestablished 412

The cost of salaries and wages for the year ending 31st March, 1951, was £537,700; and for the year ending 31st March, 1962, £1,350,500. I regret that it is not possible to give separately the amounts paid to permanent and temporary staff.
