Lord Hunt of Kings Heath – 2014 Parliamentary Question to the Cabinet Office

The below Parliamentary question was asked by Lord Hunt of Kings Heath on 2014-02-24.

To ask Her Majesty’s Government how many civil servants have been transferred from London and the South-East of England to the West Midlands since May 2010.

Lord Wallace of Saltaire

Relocation of Government staff outside of London and the South East continues to be considered, amongst other options, to deliver the savings set out at the Spending Review and increase the efficiency of the Government’s estate. Reducing and rationalising the estate could result in relocations, although there is no centrally driven relocation target to this effect. Workforce planning is primarily the responsibility of each individual Department to determine.
