HC Deb 11 October 1976 vol 917 cc20-1W
Mr. Mather

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will make a statement on his recent decision to withdraw the Civil Service support staff from the National Savings Committee.

Mr. Denzil Davies

The withdrawal of the 580 Civil Service staff support to the National Savings Voluntary Movement over the period to March 1978 represents some of the savings in manpower and related expenditure to be made by the Department for National Savings as part of the overall savings announced by my hon. Friend the Minister of State, Civil Service Department, to the House on 29th July.
