HC Deb 13 July 1992 vol 211 c511W
Mr. Betts

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what assessment she has made of the number of civil servants in her Department who could be relocated to provincial centres as part of the policy of devolving and decentralising Government Departments.

Mr. Sackville

The relocation of the national health service management executive and the National Health Service Estates agency to Leeds has started. Some 1,000 posts up to the highest management levels are involved. The first moves from London took place on 6 July as planned. By October this year, over 500 posts will have relocated, with the remainder following next spring. The whole move is expected to have been completed by the summer of 1993.
