HC Deb 09 December 1965 vol 722 c133W
Mr. Onslow

asked the Secretary of State for Wales what was the number of staff in the Department under his control on 15th October, 1965; and what increase or decease he anticipates in the period up to 15th October, 1966.

Mr. James Griffiths

There were 393 in post on 15th October last. Partly because the transfer of work on roads in Wales to my Department had not by then been completed, there may be about 70 more in post by 15th October, 1966.
