§ Sir G. Sinclair
asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government whether he is satisfied that the salaries offered to chief architects and their deputies for major new towns are sufficient to attract and retain people of the quality required for tasks of such responsibilities and opportunities; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Crossman
The salaries paid to chief architects and their deputies in new towns are in accordance with ranges agreed by the appropriate Whitley Council. I have not heard that the salaries are inadequate to attract and retain people of the quality required.
