§ Mr. Tim Renton
asked the Minister for the Civil Service how many members of the pay research unit have been declared redundant since the work of the pay research unit was suspended 12 months ago.
§ Mr. Charles R. Morris
The numbers employed in the unit have reduced by 21 full-time staff and 21 part-time technical advisers during the 12-month period. All the full-time staff and 16 of the technical advisers released have been reemployed to fill vacancies elsewhere in the Civil Service. A further review of the complement has recently been made and an additional significant reduction in the staff will take place shortly.
