HC Deb 31 March 1971 vol 814 c380W
124. Mr. John Hannam

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if, in view of the importance of Exeter as the communications centre of the South-West, he will reconsider the decision to transfer the Divisional Road Engineer's Department from Exeter to Bristol.

Mr. Graham Page

No. The proposed move of the divisional road engineer's office is to bring it into line with other regional offices of my Department, with responsibility for the whole of the South-West Economic Planning Region and situated at regional headquarters.
