HC Deb 06 December 1983 vol 50 c121W
36. Mr. Wallace

asked the Secretary of State for Employment what criteria he has laid down to determine staffing levels at jobcentres.

Mr. Peter Morrison

Decisions about the staffing of individual jobcentres take account of a number of factors including the use made of them by employers and jobseekers and the availability of resources overall. The general approach adopted reflects the recommendations of the scrutiny of the general employment service in 1982.
