HC Deb 18 January 1977 vol 924 c116W
Mr. Wrigglesworth

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what effect the operation of cash limits: (a) has had in the current year and (b) will have had to the end of the current financial year upon the number and location of staff in his Department.

Mr. Millan

The existence of cash limits is itself a useful discipline, but in practice the limits affecting Scottish Office staff numbers in the current year have not had a direct effect, because the staff projections on which the cash block was based were subsequently reduced as a consequence of the Civil Service manpower review.
