HC Deb 23 March 1970 vol 798 c272W
Mr. John Page

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what is the average weekly cost to his Department of employing a temporary shorthand typist through an employment agency; and what is the comparative weekly cost of employing an established shorthand typist of the same grade, allowing for salary, holiday pay, and other indirect and stautory costs of employment.

Mr. Ennals

This Department does not employ any shorthand typists engaged through employment agencies at present.
