HC Deb 03 June 1964 vol 695 cc165-6W
48. Mr. Holt

asked the Secretary of State for Defence what is the size of the staff in the naval recruiting office at State House, Holborn; what is the duration of the lease; and if he is satisfied that his Department is getting an adequate return for the cost of maintaining this office.

Mr. Hay

Thirty-seven naval and civilian staff are employed at the Naval Careers Office, State House, Holborn. I am convinced that recruiting needs to be conducted from modern properly-staffed offices like this one. The results so far achieved by this new office have been encouraging. The accommodation is held by the Ministry of Public Building and Works on a lease of 28 years.
