§ Mr. Newton
I have been asked to reply.
In the Whitehall area there were approximately 4,560 men and 3,080 women employed in the home civil service at 1 April 1993.
There are 27 common user estate buildings and two civil service workplace nurseries. A further nursery serving this area is scheduled to open in November. A number of Departments and agencies also have places in a private nursery in the vicinity.
