§ 59. Mr. Dodds-Parker
asked the Minister of Aviation how many industrial staff were employed in his Department in 1963–64 and 1964–65; and what is his estimate for 1965–66.
§ Mr. Roy Jenkins
The average number of industrial staff employed in 1963–64 was 14,946. In 1964–65 the figure was 14,602. I expect the average numbers to increase slightly during 1965–66.
