HC Deb 22 November 1973 vol 864 c511W
Mr. Freud

asked the Minister for the Civil Service how many employees have left the Civil Service since 6th November 1972.

Mr. Kenneth Baker

I regret to say that the full information required by the hon. Member is not available. However, it is estimated that about 50,000 non-industrial staff left the Civil Service for all reasons including retirement between 1st November 1972 and 31st August 1973. Recruitment in the same period was roughly equal.
