§ Mr. Leighton
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what was the turnover of staff in Department of Health and Social Security benefit offices (a) in inner London and (b) nationally in the last 12 months for which figures are available.
§ Mr. Portillo
The following figures give the total number of local office staff leaving the Department, for all reasons, nationally and in inner London, during the period 1 September 1986 to 31 March 1987. These numbers are then expressed as a percentage of the total local office staff in post at 1 September 1986.
I regret that the information requested is not available for a twelve month period.
