HC Deb 29 March 1988 vol 130 c434W
118. Mr. Dunnachie

To ask the Secretary of State for Employment what plans he has to increase the numbers of Her Majesty's nuclear installations inspectors.

Mr. Nicholls

The staffing of the nuclear installations inspectorate is a matter for the Health and Safety Commission and Executive. Their current plans provide for a total of 121 nuclear installations inspectors in 1988–89. A decision has yet to be taken on further increases.
