§ Mr. Alldritt
asked the Minister of Aviation what steps he is taking to resolve expeditiously the local redundancy problem within his Department at Liverpool, by transferring a substantial block of work from London to Merseyside.
§ Mr. Mulley
Although a careful examination has been made it has not been found feasible to transfer any substantial blocks of work to Merseyside. In consultation with the Staff Associations concerned and with Departments with offices on Merseyside, my Department is taking all possible steps to minimise the effects of the redundancy which is expected to arise at its Liverpool office during 1967. I hope the numbers will in the event be very small.
