HC Deb 30 October 1990 vol 178 cc422-3W
Mr. Robert Banks

To ask the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what organisations and sections within his Department presently housed in London are being considered for dispersal to provincial areas.

Mr. Curry

My right hon. Friend and I are currently considering relocating some of the Department's headquarters functions away from London. The areas under consideration include work on pesticides and plant health, some of our statistical services and sections of our personnel, management and common services.
