§ Mrs. Ewing
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer how many of the 500 civil servants engaged on the Social Survey work in Scotland.
§ Mr. Taverne
All of the 208 civil servants employed by the Government Social Survey Department are based on London and to split them up into different areas would cause substantial loss of effectiveness and economy. Field work is done by fee-paid interviewers, at present numbering 334, of whom 27 are working in Scotland.
