HC Deb 23 April 1968 vol 763 c34W
Mr. Onslow

asked the Postmaster General what increase or decrease there has been in the non-industrial staff of his Department since 15th October, 1964; and what decrease he anticipates during the next six months.

Mr. Mason

An increase of 29,500 or 7.7 per cent. In the same period business turnover has increased by nearly 24 per cent. Future staff levels depend on business trends, offset by increased productivity and developments in technology, and the availability of recruits to fill existing vacancies.
