§ Mr. Trotter
asked the Minister for the Civil Service what is the number of staff in each grade of the Civil Service of principal and equivalent rank and above.
§ Mr. Charles R. Morris
I would refer the hon. Member to the answer I gave to the hon. Member for Weston-super-Mare (Mr. Wiggin) on 12th December—[Vol. 833, c.239–240]—for the grades above principal level. On the same basis the number of staff at principal and equivalent level is 5,180 in General Service Classes, 2,296 in the Science Group and 1,998 in the Professional and Technology Group.
