HC Deb 20 May 1985 vol 79 c271W
Mr. Tony Banks

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many civil servants in his Department and at what grades are currently engaged on work associated with the abolition of the Greater London council and the metropolitan county councils; and what is the total cost.

Mr. Brittan

At present one full-time principal, and the time of other staff, amounting to about eight posts in all. On the basis of the Treasury's "Ready Reckoner of Staff Costs" the total annual rate would be about £270,000.
