HC Deb 07 November 1966 vol 735 cc229-30W
Mr. Evelyn King

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what factors have caused him to increase the number of civil servants employed in his Department.

Mr. John Mackie

The main factors which have led to an increase in the staff of this Department over the past two years are the increase in work arising from the development and implementation of new policies and the expansion of the technical and advisory services.
