HC Deb 07 November 1966 vol 735 c221W
Mr. Evelyn King

asked the Minister of Labour what factors have caused him to increase the number of civil servants in his Department.

Mr. Gunter

The main factors have been expansion of vocational and industrial training, development of the employment services, strengthening of the factory inspectorate and the redundancy payments scheme. More recently additional staff have been required for earnings related unemployment benefit, selective employment payments and the redeployment of labour.
