Mr. John Garrett

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will list the total number, and the number of women, employed in his Department in each grade from clerical assistant to deputy secretary, including equivalent grades.

Mr. Roy Jenkins

The numbers of staff, other than casual workers, employed whole or part-time by the Home Office as at 1st January 1975 were: non-industrial, 27,206, including 6,029 women; industrial, 3,839, including 969 women.

The detailed information requested is not at present readily available but by April a computer-based personnel record will be in operation and I will send my hon. Friend the numbers of men and women in each of the non-industrial grades.
