HC Deb 08 July 1977 vol 934 cc700-1W
Mr. Stephen Ross

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what proposals he has in mind for strengthening the accountancy procedure for the direct labour teams employed by the Property Services Agency.

Mr. Marks

A more accurate attribution of overheads to the directly employed labour force has led to a review of the relevant charges. No other accounting changes are in prospect, but an improved system of planning and control designed to increase efficiency is being introduced.
