Mr. Fabricant

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence, pursuant to his answer of 21 January 1997,Official Report, column 552, when the Treasury initially introduced the non-movers package; when responsibility for relocation expenses was transferred to Government Departments; and what additional changes to the terms originally on offer they are permitted to make.

Mr. Soames

The arrangement for civilian staff that is not known in the Ministry of Defence as the non-mover's package was first introduced by the Treasury in 1989.

The Treasury delegated to Departments the responsibility for determining relocation expenses for civil servants in May 1993.

Departments have a degree of flexibility to make changes within the rules laid down in the civil service management code.
