HC Deb 27 November 1998 vol 321 c23W
Mr. Gibb

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer how many staff in his Department were employed in the Insurance Directorate on(a) 31 December 1996 and (b) 31 December 1997. [61039]

Ms Hewitt

None, since the Insurance Directorate was until 5 January 1998 part of the Department of Trade and Industry. I understand, however, that the numbers of permanent staff in post, on a full-time equivalent basis, at 1 January 1997 and 1 January 1998 were 91.6 and 93.6 respectively.
