HC Deb 22 October 1969 vol 788 c262W
Mrs. Ewing

asked the Prime Minister how many of the 550 employees formerly with the Department of Economic Affairs are already redeployed.

The Prime Minister

Most of the staff of the former Department of Economic Affairs have already been re-allocated to the Departments which have taken over responsibility for its functions. About 100 common services staff have been allocated to the Civil Service Department, either to be absorbed there or to be redeployed to other Departments in due course.
