§ Mr. Forman
asked the Minister for the Civil Service whether he is satisfied with the adequacy of present departmental arrangements for the control of Civil Service manpower and costs; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Charles R. Morris
Yes. The present arrangements, which we kept under scrutiny, ensure that the levels of Civil Service manpower and associated administrative expenditure are reviewed regularly and that the levels of staff and administrative expenditure are related as closely as possible to the work to be done.
