HC Deb 03 April 1985 vol 76 c612W
Mr. Peter Bruinvels

asked the Lord Privy Seal how many people work in the Palace of Westminster; and if he will break this figure down into categories including secretaries and research assistants to Members of both Houses.

Mr. Biffen

[pursuant to his reply, 2 April 1985, c. 562–3]: The number of Staff and Officers employed by the House of Lords' Departments is 263, and not 315 as stated in my earlier reply.
