55. Mr. Evelyn King

asked the Minister of Technology if he will state the number and percentage of scientists and engineers who have been transferred from Winfrith in the last two years; and how many during that period have relinquished their posts at the request of the Authority.

Mr. Cousins

In the last two years, six scientists representing 2 per cent. of the strength, and twenty professional engineers, representing 8 per cent. of the strength, were transferred from Winfrith to other Authority establishments. No scientists or engineers at Winfrith were asked to relinquish appointments during this period.
