HC Deb 12 December 1985 vol 88 c705W
Mr. Christopher Hawkins

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science how many staff in his Department have been required to leave their employment since 1979 (a) to enable the Department to meet financial targets and (b) because their jobs were redundant.

Sir Keith Joseph

Nobody has been required to leave to enable the Department to meet its financial targets. Two part-time cleaners and a personal secretary have been made redundant.
