asked the Minister of National Insurance if he will make a comprehensive statement on present plans for staffing the Ministry of National Insurance.

I have completed arrangements for establishing a small Headquarters staff and for carrying on the existing administrative work of the Ministry as transferred to it by the recent Orders in Council. The nature and extent of the further staff which the Department will require must depend on the form of the relevant legislation as passed by Parliament. I cannot as present add to the general indications given in the White Paper on Social Insurance Part I and Part II as supplemented by the statement made by my right hon. Friend the Chancellor of the Exchequer during the Debate on 3rd November last, and by the reply I gave on 10th November last, to my hon. Friend the Member for Chislehurst (Sir W. Smithers).
