HC Deb 18 July 1968 vol 768 cc265-6W
Mr. Arthur Lewis

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he will give, for the most convenient stated period of time since October, 1964, the number of Commonwealth immigrants who have been taken on in his Department in executive and administrative employment other than manual or industrial employment, the countries of origin of these immigrants and their actual stated appointments; and whether he will give similar details for the various departments for which he has financial responsibility.

Mr. Harold Lever

In the Treasury, a special count shows that the number employed on 15th July, 1968 was 42, including 2 from Canada, 16 from Caribbean countries, 4 from Ceylon, 3 from Ghana, 9 from India, 5 from Nigeria, 1 from Pakistan, 1 from Sierra Leone and 1 from Singapore. There were 2 economists, 27 clerks, 11 typists and 2 messengers. Figures for earlier dates and for the other departments referred to cannot be given without disproportionate effort.
