The number of directly employed council staff in England fell by around 9,400 between March 1995 and March 1996, according to Local Government Management Board estimates.

LGMB principal research officer Peter Norris said: 'The decline this year is in line with a longer-term trend.'

The number of part-time staff increased in England, by 12,500, while 21,900 full-time workers left local government.

The board estimates that Welsh staff numbers rose by 400, with 600 full-time staff replaced by 1,000 part-timers.

Excluding law and order services there were 1,157,600 full- time and 950,400 part-time staff in March 1996 in England and Wales.
