Mr. Fatchett

asked the Secretary of State for Defence how many people are currently employed in the royal ordnance factories on a casual basis; and when the policy of casual employment is likely to terminate.

There are currently 564 casual employees in the royal ordnance factories. A decision on when to resume permanent recruitment will be taken in the light of progress towards the ROFs change of status.
