HC Deb 19 December 1985 vol 89 cc262-3W
Mr. Knowles

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what conclusions he has come to on recent efficiency scrutinies carried out in his Department; and if he will make a statement.

Sir George Young

I have today placed copies of the scrutinies of the identification and development of internal talent, and of the management of office accommodation, incorporating our response, in the Libraries of both Houses. These two scrutinies were carried out jointly with my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Transport's Department. I refer my hon. Friend to the answer given to him today by my hon. Friend the Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Transport.
