asked the Lord Privy Seal the size of the staff of the Unemployment Grants Committee; and whether be is satisfied that it is sufficient to deal with the number of applications now to hand?
§ Mr. LAWSON
I have been asked to reply. The staff of the Committee has recently been increased and additional accommodation provided. It now consists of a secretary, assistant secretary, 11 clerical assistants and seven shorthand-writers and typists. The staff is considered adequate at the moment, but it will be increased if necessary.
