HC Deb 27 June 1979 vol 969 c229W
23. Mrs. Renée Short

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment how many people within his Department will lose their jobs so as to enable him to achieve his expenditure cuts of £440 million.

Mr. Heseltine

Most of the staff who will be saved as a result of these reductions will be saved by local authorities. I am considering what staff reductions can be made in the Department in a separate exercise.
