HC Deb 09 November 1943 vol 393 c1111W
Mr. R. Morgan

asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury the total number of civil servants who were evacuated from London since the beginning of the war, together with the Departments concerned; and how many of the personnel and Departments have now returned to London and the reasons for this step?

Mr. Assheton

Nearly three-quarters of the Civil Service are now located outside London, but it is not possible to say how many of these were evacuated from London owing to the war-time changes in the Service. As regards returns to London I would refer my hon. Friend to the answer given to the hon. and gallant Member for Rochester (Captain Plugge) on 19th October.
