HC Deb 08 November 1976 vol 919 c51W
Mr. Alexander Fletcher

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what are the targets that have been set for local government staff numbers by the Joint Watch on Manpower (a) in total and (b) in administering and servicing education.

Mr. McElhone

None. The Joint Watch on Manpower does not set targets or affect the right of individual local authorities to decide the number of staff they require to discharge their functions.
