HC Deb 15 March 1983 vol 39 c147W
Mr. Parry

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what recent representations he has received concerning staffing levels of his Department on Merseyside; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Newton

I have had representations from the North-Western Labour group of hon. Members about staffing levels in DHSS local offices in Merseyside, and I have agreed to meet a deputation later this month.
