Mr. Wm. Ross
asked the Minister for the Civil Service what was the total wages/salary bill for civil servants in each of the last four financial years; and what is the projected figure for the current year.
§ Mr. Charles R. Morris
I understand that the hon. Member is interested in the wages and salaries costs of members of the Home Civil Service who are employed in Northern Ireland. Civil servants from a number of Government Departments are deployed in this way, but information about their cost is not held centrally and could only be obtained at disproportionate cost.
