HC Deb 16 March 1964 vol 691 c108W
Mr. Oram

asked the Minister of Labour how many statisticians are employed in his Department exclusively for forecasting manpower trends.

Mr. Godber

For work of this nature my Department uses the resources of its Manpower Research Unit, which is staffed by administrative and executive staff assisted by the advice of a professional economist from outside, and those of its Statistics Department, which includes six professional statisticians and a large number of non-professionals. There are no statisticians employed exclusively on this work.
