HC Deb 23 March 1993 vol 221 cc561-2W
Mr. Gordon Prentice

To ask the Secretary of State for Social Security if he will make a statement on the arrangements for recruiting personnel to work at the new administrative headquarters in Leeds.

Mr. Burt

When a vacancy first arises in DSS in Quarry house in Leeds, consideration is given to staff who are available within the organisation. Vacancies for clerical posts which cannot be filled in this way are advertised in the local Employment Service jobcentre or local press. Vacancies in specialist posts are drawn to the attention of staff in other Government Departments, advertised in the national press or possibly filled by the use of executive search agencies.
