§ Mr. David Nicholson
To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment what information he has on the amount of overtime worked in local government manual services in each of the last four years for which figures are available; if he will publish such information, in summary form, in theOfficial Report; and if he will make a statement on his proposals to reduce the amounts of overtime worked.
§ Mr. Heathcoat-Amory
This information is not available centrally. The amount of overtime worked by manual workers in local government is a matter for each local authority.
