HC Deb 15 December 1971 vol 828 c102W
64. Mr. Winterton

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what estimate he has made of the savings in wages and salaries resulting from the proposals in the Local Government Bill; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Graham Page

No estimate can be made at this stage. Staff complements will be decided by the new authorities with the advice which will be contained in the Report of the Management Study Group set up by my right hon. Friend and the local authorities associations. Reorganisation will enable staff to be more effectively and economically deployed within modern structures of management.
