HC Deb 22 July 1969 vol 787 c333W
Mr. Marples

asked the Minister of Public Building and Works what costing and accounting support is provided to the Contracts Directorate in his Department; and whether this is organised as an integral part of the Contracts Directorate or as a separate supporting activity.

Mr. John Silkin

A costing and accounting section consisting of a Principal Accountant and eight professional staff forms an integral part of Contracts Directorate. Advice is given by these staff both on stores and on building and civil engineering contracts.
