HC Deb 01 May 1972 vol 836 cc36-7W
Mr. Lamond

asked the Minister for the Civil Service how many departments it is now the Government's intention to move to the North West Region in the next two years.

Mr. Kenneth Baker:

Plans are in hand to disperse the work set out below from the London area to the North West Region within the next two years:

detail the changes which have taken place in this list in the past year.

Mr. Kenneth Baker:

Up-to-date information is not at present available in the Civil Service Department but, following the Government's acceptance of the recommendation in the Report of the Committee on the Employment of Women in the Civil Service that both men and women should be considered for any job, I intend to review the position shortly and will then provide the information.
