HC Deb 03 February 1982 vol 17 cc163-4W
Mr. Freeson

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services how many staff were employed by local offices of the Department of Health and Social Security in 1979; what was the ratio between the numbers of staff and claimants at that time; what are the similar figures for the last available date; and if he will break the figures down to give the information for each region.

Mrs. Chalker

I shall let the right hon. Gentleman have a reply as soon as possible.
