§ Mr. Rhodri Morgan
To ask the Secretary of State for Wales what grades of civil servants have been responsible for negotiating the potential sites or buildings for the National Assembly for Wales; and if the same civil servants were responsible for negotiating the lease of Crickhowell House. 
§ Mr. Ron Davies
A range of civil servants, from Permanent Secretary to junior management grades, have been involved in the siting of the Assembly. One of these officials had some involvement in the process of acquisition of Crickhowell House, but not in the direct lease negotiations.
