§ Sir C. Osborne
asked the Minister of Technology if he will give in column form the number of officials he employs established and non-established, respectively, whose total salaries and allowances are under £1,500 per annum, between £1,500 and £3,000 per annum, between £3,000 and £5,000 per annum, between £5,000 and £7,500 per annum, and over £7,500 per annum, respectively.
§ Mr. Benn
My Department employs 14,500 established and 7,500 non-established non-industrial civilian staff. I regret that detailed information about numbers of staff in the quoted salary bands is not readily available in that form and could not be obtained without disproportionate expenditure of time and money.
