HONIARA, Solomon Islands (January 4, 1999 - PACNEWS/SIBC)---Another 400 civil servants in the Solomon Islands will leave their jobs at the end of the month.

It will be the next step in the first phase of the government's restructuring of the country's civil service.

The consultant to the redundancy program, Milner Tozaka, said letters of intent already have been issued to those involved.

The first group of public servants affected by the program last year included Permanent Secretaries, Under-Secretaries, Assistant Secretaries and the Chief Administration and Accounting Officers.

About 550 officers will lose their jobs in the first stage of the government's "right-sizing" program.
