HC Deb 02 July 1968 vol 767 c198W
41. Mr. Oakes

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government why the Ordnance Survey Department is not being moved into a development or an intermediate area.

Mr. MacDermot

It was decided in 1961 that the whole headquarters staff of the Ordnance Survey should be concentrated in Southampton where most of the staff were already located. By 1964, work on the new building there had already started.
