§ Mr. Wigley
asked the Secretary of State for Defence what is the number of persons currently employed in military and civilian roles, respectively, in the Army, Royal Navy and Royal Air Force; and how this figure compares with corresponding figures five years and 10 years previously.
§ Mr. William Rodgers
The figures requested are as follows:435W
Because of reorganisation, rationalisation and integration measures, the civilian figures are not directly comparable. They also exclude those employed by the Procurement Executive and Central Staffs who cannot be attributed to a particular Service.
