asked the Chancellor of the Exchquer how much revenue was raised by the development land tax in each of its years of operation.
The information is as follows:
|Year||Development Land Tax||Net of tax benefit to local authorities|
|Full time equivalents.*|
|At 1 January|
Source: Quarterly Staff Return.
* Part time staff counted as half units.
Entrant and leaver figures for industrial staff are not held centrally; numbers for the non-industrial Home Civil Service are:
|Leavers by cause|
|Voluntary early retirement||19||10||—||612||130|

It is known, however, that there were over 2,300 redundancies amongst industrial civil servants in 1981.
The annual changes shown in the two tables differ because of differences in their coverage and in the counting of part-time staff.
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer how many civil servants are in receipt of salaries in excess of that paid to hon. Members.
About 20,500 non-industrial civil servants at present receive salaries greater than £13,950 per annum, which is the current basic pay of hon. Members.
