§ Mr. Robert Taylor
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what was the cost of the whole page advertisement for architectural staff which appeared in theArchitect's Journal on 21st July 1976; and why it is necessary to advertise for further staff over a very wide area at a time of a cutback in capital expenditure.
§ Mr. Freeson
Including associated expenses, £380. Although the agency's total staff numbers are being reduced, some wastage has to be made good to maintain the balance in multi-disciplinary teams.
