§ Mr. Galbraith
To ask the Secretary of State for Employment what plans she has to regrade her Department's staff with resultant staff surpluses at certain grades; if she will make a statement.
§ Mr. McLoughlin
In the light of experience, certain aspects of advisory work in the Employment Service are being regraded. As a consequence, there will be a temporary surplus of some executive officer personnel. Pending their redeployment such staff that are surplus will undertake work of more junior grade on a temporary basis, albeit at their existing salary.
