HC Deb 16 July 1969 vol 787 c109W
Mr. Younger

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will draw up proposals for improving the statistical services within his Department, so that fuller answers can be given to Parliamentary Questions.

Mr. Ross

The Statistical Services in my Departments are kept under regular review. I would be opposed however to the substantial increase in the number of civil servant statisticians needed to meet the many requests for more statistics put to me by hon. Members opposite.
