HC Deb 05 July 1978 vol 953 c174W

asked the Minister for the Civil Service how many offices of Government Departments have been moved out of London since 1970; and how many Civil Service jobs have been moved out of London as a consequence.

Mr. Charles R. Morris

Between 1st October 1970 and 31st March 1978, over 12,600 Civil Service posts from 32 departments were dispersed from London. Comprehensive information about individual offices moved is not available centrally. The total does not include posts established in new offices as a result of the policy of setting up new work outside London whenever possible.
