§ Mr. Robert Hughes
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland how many man-hours and what percentage of conditioned man-hours were spent by officials in his Department in the most recent yearly period for which figures are available on work arising from the activities of the Select Committee on Scottish Affairs; if he will break the figures down so as to show separately under-secretaries and above, assistant secretaries, principals, and senior executive officers and below, including support staff; and what was the highest percentage of working time spent by an official, specifying the grade of official, on such work in the period mentioned.
§ Mr. Younger
For the year ending mid-February 1981, a total of about 3,798 man-hours—513 man-days—was spent by officials of my Department on this work. Of this total about 570 man-hours were spent at under-secretary level and above, 638¼ by assistant secretaries, 812 by principals and 1,777¾ at senior executive officer level and below—including all supporting staff. The other information requested is not available.
