HC Deb 14 February 1917 vol 90 c644W

asked the Minister of Pensions whether he has as yet been able to make arrangements for housing the Ministry under one roof; and, if not, when he expects to be able to do so?


The staff which will be transferred to the Pensions Ministry at the present time exceeds 2,000, and, in the nature of the case, it is impossible to foresee what further staff may be required. It has not, therefore, been found practicable for the moment to find a single building suitable for the whole Ministry. The various branches will be brought together as opportunities offer and as far as circumstances permit.
