HC Deb 18 July 1984 vol 64 c254W
Mr. Ralph Howell

Mr. John Patten

Information is not available in the precise form requested. Analysis of non-medical manpower employed in the control of stores is not available in this detail for 1981. Detailed information on staff engaged in particular areas of work at 30 September 1983 is still being validated but is expected to be available within the next month. I shall write to my hon. Friend as soon as it is available. Information for 30 September 1982 is given in the table.
