§ Sir C. Osborne
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if he will give in column form the number of officials he employs, established and non-established, respectively, whose total salaries and allowances are under £1,500 per annum, between £1,500 and £3,000 per annum, between £3,000 and £5,000 per annum, between £5,000 and £7,500, and over £7,500 per annum, respectively.
§ Mr. Mulley
The total number of home-based officials paid from the Diplomatic Service Vote in 1968 was 10,660. Of these 8,261 were established and 2,399 non-established. I regret that information about their salaries and allowances in the form asked for by the hon. Member is not readily available; to produce it would involve a disproportionate expenditure of time and money.
