§ Mr. Kenneth Baker
asked the Secretary of State for Industry how many civil servants are involved in administering the Queen's Award to Industry.
§ Mr. Deakins
I have been asked to reply.
The complement of the Queen's Award Office is 10. Depending on the volume of applications received, the office is augmented temporarily by a number of full-time and part-time staff for varying periods during the months October to April. This year it is expected there will be a full-time equivalent of 11 additional staff.
