HC Deb 07 February 1996 vol 271 c219W
Mr. Dafis

To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland what reductions he estimates will take place in respect of current staffing levels within the agriculture group of the Scottish Office in 1996–97. [12303]

Mr. Michael Forsyth

A reduction in the staffing levels across the Scottish Office is anticipated as a consequence of cuts of around 5 per cent. running costs for 1996–97. There will be reductions within the agriculture group, but the details have not yet been determined.
