§ Mr. Morgan
asked the Secretary of State for Wales, pursuant to his answer to the hon. Member for Carmarthen (Dr. Thomas) on 6 February, Official Report, c. 229, what the total cost of the move of the commodities and animal health divisions of the Welsh Office from Aberystwyth to Cardiff will be; and how many personnel will be involved.
§ Mr. Nicholas Edwards
It is not possible at present to make a firm estimate. However, the probability is that, as a consequence of the proposed transfer of about 25 posts, up to about 12 staff might have to be moved at a cost in the range £100,000–£150,000.
