Mr. Pike

asked the Paymaster General how many wages council inspectors are currently in post in the northwest region; what is the proposed figure for 1987; and what was the comparable figure in 1979.

Currently there are 15 outdoor wages inspectors in post in the north-west region. It is planned to reduce the number of posts to 10 in 1987. There were 21 outdoor inspectors in post in 1979.
