§ Mr. Onslow
asked the Minister of Public Building and Works 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. Mellish
Excluding reclassified industrial staff, there has been an increase of 1,011, of whom more than half 37W were transferred from other Departments with their work. I expect an increase of about 200 between now and October, 1968, which will be within the figure authorised in the Estimate for 1968–69.
