HC Deb 02 April 1965 vol 709 c295W
Mr. Onslow

asked the Minister of Land and Natural Resources 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. Willey

The Department was not set up until 21st October, 1964. The staff numbered 214 on 1st April, 1965, and I expect that there will be an increase of 60 by 15th October. These figures include the staffs of the National Parks Commission and the Water Resources Board.
