§ 42. Mr. MICHAEL BEAUMONT
asked the Minister of Health if he will state what is the composition and cost of the Parliamentary Department of the Ministry of Health?
§ Mr. E. BROWN
There is no separate Parliamentary Department in the Ministry. The Parliamentary work is done in the divisions concerned as it arises, and in the legal Department. To this latter is attached a small clerical section for Parliamentary purposes consisting of one Higher Clerical Officer, and four Clerks, at an annual cost of, approximately,£1,500.
