§ Sir Richard Glyn
asked the Minister of Aviation what was the total number of civil servants employed by his Department full time and part time, respectively, at the last convenient date; and what increases or decreases these figures represent on the comparable figures for October, 1964 and August, 1965.
§ Mr. Mulley
37,762 full-time and 1,231 part-time civil servants on 1st July, 1966. These figures, which include for ease of comparison staff transferred to the Board of Trade and on secondment to the British Airports Authority represent decreases of 431 and 345 in the numbers of full-time employees, and increases of 63 and 87 in the numbers of part-time employees, on the comparable figures for 1st October, 1964 and 1st July, 1965 respectively. Comparable figures for August, 1965 are not readily available.
