§ Mr. Dalyell
asked the Prime Minister whether, in view of the increase of non-industrial civil servants under his Administration, he will create one additional Parliamentary Secretary for the Civil Service Department.
§ The Prime Minister
No. As I told the hon. Member last Thursday, the increase in the number of non-industrial civil servants is due to the extension of services to the community, particularly in the Department of Health and Social Security.—[Vol. 829, c. 1610–2.]
