§ Mr. Wrigglesworth
asked the Secretary of State for Industry 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. Les Huckfield
The operation of cash limits is but one of several factors affecting the control of the number and location of staff in my Department. The number of staff is at present, and by the end of the current financial year is expected to remain, within the provision180W made in the relevant cash block. Cash limits will have had no effect on their location during this period.
