§ Mr. Oakes
As the Staff Watch is a jointly conducted survey I am arranging for this request to be noted by the central and local government representatives who will be considering shortly how the additional information that is becoming available can most usefully be presented and published.
In the meantime the hon. Member is no doubt aware that the changes he refers to may be seen by comparing the figures published on 7th October 1975 and those published on 25th February 1976.
§ Mr. Michael Latham
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment whether he will now give details of the results of the latest return of the joint manpower watch on local authority staffing.
