HC Deb 02 May 1972 vol 836 c108W
81. Mr John Wells

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food how many persons are employed full-time in coast protection and land drainage works under appropriate authorities; and what increase there has been in their number in the last five years.

Mr. Peter Mills:

I regret that this information is not readily available and could not be provided without considerable expense which would be in my view unjustified.
