§ Mr. Robert Taylor
asked the Secretary of State for Trade how many staff are currently employed at Companies House at Cardiff; and how this total compares with the number employed at the London office before the transfer.
§ Mr. Clinton Davis
On 19 March 1979 the number of staff employed at the Companies Registration Office, Cardiff, was 868½. On 1 April 1976 the number of staff employed at Companies House in London was 1,081. These two figures are not directly comparable, as 224 staff continue to be employed in the London search room.
