§ Sir Geoffrey Finsberg
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he is satisfied with the staffing levels of his Department's offices in Camden, particularly at Melton street.
§ Mr. Major
The staffing of the Department's local offices which deal with claimants in Camden is as follows and has been determined in accordance with the Department's complementing system, which aims to match the numbers of staff to the work load. A full complement review was begun on 14 October 1985 to reappraise the base complement for the Department and its results will be available in mid-1986 'A Guide to the DHSS Complementing System' giving details of complementing arrangements is in the Library.
