HC Deb 12 March 1984 vol 56 c49W
Dr. Cunningham

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will publish his assumptions about local authority manpower which underlie table 2.18.2 of Cmnd. 9143-ii for each service in a form consistent with table 1.15 of Cmnd. 9143-i.

Mr. Peter Rees

No such assumptions underlie table 2.18.2. Table 1.15 gives central Government manpower targets. The Government do not set manpower targets for local authorities.
