HL Deb 08 February 1995 vol 561 c11WA
Lord Rodgers of Quarry Bank

asked Her Majesty's Government:

How many civil servants and of what seniority have been appointed to full-time or part-time posts in the new unit in the Home Office set up to strengthen Ministers' ability to supervise the performance of the prison service.

Baroness Blatch

The unit at present comprises a Grade 7 and a Grade 5. I expect it to build up to perhaps five or six people as its programme of work develops.
