HC Deb 30 April 1980 vol 983 c560W
Mr. Gourlay

asked the Secretary of State for Defence if, in view of changing conditions, he will consider the formation of a special co-ordinating committee to deal with and co-ordinate redundancies arising from overmanning in defence establishments.

Mr. Hayhoe

No. Satisfactory arrangements already exist for consultation and agreed procedures for handling redundancies are laid down in MOD civilian staff manuals.
