HC Deb 01 May 1972 vol 836 c36W
73. Dame Irene Ward

asked the Minister for the Civil Service, what Government establishments are being considered by the appropriate committee for transfer to the Northern Region; and if he will give an assurance that the report will be expedited.

Mr. Kenneth Baker:

My right hon. Friend the Prime Minister told the House on 8th February that he expected to receive recommendations as a result of the location review later this year. As my right hon. Friend explained the review is being pressed forward. The Northern Region is under consideration as a potential receiving area.—[Vol. 830, c. 1134–1135.]
