HC Deb 02 May 1972 vol 836 c134W
Mr. McBride

asked the Secretary of State for Wales what estimate he has made of the cost to public funds of the equivalent of five full-time additional rent officers, in order to administer the Housing Finance Bill in Wales.

Mr. Peter Thomas:

I estimate that each additional full-time equivalent rent officer required in Wales costs £5,500 annually, making allowance for supporting staff, accommodation, and other overheads.
