HC Deb 30 July 1976 vol 916 c434W
Mr. MacGregor

asked the Minister for the Civil Service what will be the total addition to Civil Service staff costs in 1977–78 of the Chancellor of the Exchequer's increase of 2 per cent, on employers' national insurance contributions; and whether it is the Government's intention that this will be met through an increase in the appropriate cash limit blocks or through a reduction in numbers employed.

Mr. Charles R. Morris

I would refer the hon. Member to my answer to my hon. Friend the Member for Coventry, South-West (Mrs. Wise) on 27th July 1976—[Vol. 916, c. 130.] Cash limits for 1977–78 have not yet been settled.
