HC Deb 11 May 1964 vol 695 c5W
Mr. Oram

asked the Minister of Labour, in view of the publication of development plans for several regions and of the importance of a close study of manpower trends in relation to these plans, if he will appoint statisticians in his Department exclusively for such work.

Mr. Godber

We have not so far found it necessary to employ individual statisticians exclusively on this work but the position will be kept under review.
