HC Deb 05 May 1955 vol 540 c168W
Mr. Grey

asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury if he will make a statement on the transfer of a Department to the North-East.

Mr. H. Brooke

It has been provisionally decided that the Salaries and Pensions Branches of the Ministry of Education, comprising about 350 posts, will be transferred to Durham. It is my hope and desire that it will be possible to transfer part of some other Government Department to Durham also.
