§ Mr. Robert Banks
To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will list the sections and organisations within his Department for which there are plans for relocation or amalgamation.
§ Mr. Howard
The Home Office has no major relocation or amalgamation plans at present, but a number of minor moves are being planned. In particular, the central research and support establishment will move from Aldermaston to forensic science service headquarters in Birmingham and the prison service tactical management and planning unit (TMPU) will move from Birmingham to London, both in September 1993. TMPU will also be amalgamated with the prison service headquarters section responsible for the managements of category A prisoners.
