HC Deb 17 December 1963 vol 686 c180W
54. Mr. Grimond

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer to which cities the 26,000 civil servants dispersed under Sir Gilbert Flemming's proposals have been sent.

Mr. Boyd-Carpenter

The numbers involved in Sir Gilbert Flemming's proposals were 18,000, as made clear in my statement of 18th July, and not as stated by the right hon. Gentleman. The first moves under these proposals will take place in the New Year. Meanwhile, under moves planned earlier, about 5,000 staff are being dispersed. They are moving to Durham, Chesterfield, Southend, Tichfield and Basildon.
