HC Deb 28 June 1965 vol 715 c2W
14. Mr. Bence

asked the Minister of Land and Natural Resources if he is satisfied that the Water Resources Board are recruiting sufficient qualified staff to enable them to discharge their functions; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Willey

The Board's compliment is 20 civil engineering posts, of which 16 are filled, and 12 geological posts, of which 7 are filled. This is reasonably satisfactory. The Board will be reviewing the situation in the autumn.
