HL Deb 07 October 1976 vol 374 c1646WA

asked Her Majesty's Government:

How many civil servants fluent in one or more of the official languages of the EEC, other than English, have been recruited in each of the last ten years by each Ministry or Department.


A total of 756 members of the Home Civil Service fluent in one or more of the official EEC languages, other than English, joined the Service in the ten years 1966 to 1975 and are still serving. As the full tabulation by Department and year of entry is somewhat large for inclusion in theOfficial Report I am sending it to the noble Lord separately.
