HC Deb 11 November 1985 vol 86 c79W
Mr. Tony Banks

asked the Secretary of State for Transport how many additional traffic and transportation engineers his Department is intending to recruit to its London office by 1 April 1986; and on what aspects of transportation within London they will be engaged.

Mrs. Chalker

The Civil Service Commission has recently concluded a recruitment competition for a number of grade I and II civil engineers for my Department. They were all required to fill vacancies caused by internal promotions and natural wastage.

Five grade I recruits from this competition are being offered posts in our London regional office and will fill vacancies of a general engineering nature early in the new year.

The recruitment of professional engineers for my Department is a continuing process against the background of regular reviews of the Department's needs.
