HC Deb 02 April 1965 vol 709 c284W
Mr. Onslow

asked the Minister of Aviation what increase or decrease in staff there has been in the Department under his control since 16th October, 1964; and what increase or decrease he anticipates in the period up to 15th October, 1965.

Mr. Roy Jenkins

There has been an increase of 70 in non-industrial staff since 16th October, 1964, and I anticipate a further increase of 400 between now and 15th October, 1965. Largely due to seasonal factors there has been a decrease of 200 in industrial staff since 16th October, 1964. I expect this to be made good and there to be a further increase of about 100 between now and 15th October, 1965. With the expected increases most branches of the Department will still be below complement.
