asked the Minister of Public Building and Works what contingency plans he has for the redeployment of personnel in his Department at present serving in the Far East to meet a large withdrawal of British troops from the Far East; and what plans he has for finding posts for such personnel in Great Britain.

Apart from locally-engaged personnel, my Department has only 327 staff in the Far East, not all of whom are employed on work for the Armed Services.

Staff recalled as the result of any military redeployment could be readily employed in the United Kingdom or elsewhere against existing vacancies.
