HC Deb 05 April 1965 vol 710 cc29-31W
Mr. Goodhew

asked the Minister of Transport what is the total number of administrative and engineering staff, respectively, in his Department in so far as concerns its present reduced responsibilities; and how these figures compare

similar to that published on page 18 of Roads in England and Wales, 1962–63.

Mr. Tom Fraser

Information about the larger one-way schemes introduced in London in the last two years, the results of which have been reviewed, is given below. Other schemes are still operating as experiments and similar information is not yet available.

The following is the information:

with the numbers employed on the same duties in 1955 and 1960.

Mr. Tom Fraser

I understand that the hon. Member is concerned only with those members of my Department who are dealing with highway matters. Over the period in question the volume of this work has considerably increased. The numbers of staff engaged on it are as follows:

1955 1960 1965
Administrative, Executive and Clerical staff 325 452 912
Engineering staff 293 259 403

These figures do not include staff at the Road Research Laboratory, which became my responsibility on 1st April this year.
