HC Deb 14 July 1992 vol 211 c527W
Mr. Steen

To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster how many staff his Department currently employs; what are the total personnel costs; and what were the staffing levels and personnel costs in 1970.

Mr. Jackson

The number of staff currently in my Department, excluding the agencies, is 542. The annual estimated total staff costs are £14.5 million. As my Department did not exist in its present form in 1970, it is not possible to provide any comparative staffing levels and staff costs.
