WARSAW, Poland, July 29 (UPI) -- The Polish government plans to sack as many as 12,000 civil servants to reduce expenditures, an official said.

Michael Boni, a ranking aide in the Polish prime minister's office, said the Cabinet is already working on cutting the number of employees in the administration, Polish Radio reported Wednesday.

Prime Minister Donald Tusk suggested 10 percent of civil servants could be dismissed as redundant and asked Boni to produce a plan to lay off as many as 12,000 employees, the Gazeta Wyborcza daily said.

Boni said the bill to reduce the bureaucracy should be ready within the next 30 days.
