§ Mr. Kilfedder
asked the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland how many permanent civil servants in the service of the one-time Government of Northern Ireland will have to have other employment found for them; what is the status or rank of the persons principally involved; and if they will be offered employment elsewhere in the Northern Ireland Civil Service or in the British Civil Service.
§ Mr. David Howell
While it is too early to give precise figures, comparatively few civil servants are likely to have to be deployed on different duties. This should not cause difficulty.
