§ Mr. Edelman
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what was the percentage change in the number of offices of profit outside the appointments system of the Civil Service Commission within his gift between 1st January 1963 and 1st January 1975, and in their total value.
§ Mr. Roy Jenkins
I would refer my hon. Friend to the reply which I gave to his Question on 20th February,—[Vol. 886, c.458–9.] Information in respect of 1st January 1963 is not readily available and cannot be obtained without a disproportionate cost to public funds.
