The below Parliamentary question was asked by Mark Hendrick on 2016-09-14.

To ask Mr Chancellor of the Exchequer, pursuant to the Answer of 13 September 2016 to Question 45282, where staff who work at the Valuation Office Agency in Preston are planned to be deployed after the planned closure of that office; and how many staff at what cost at that office he plans to make redundant after that closure.

Jane Ellison

The Valuation Office Agency will consult with staff affected by the closure of the Preston office. Options will include working from an alternative location or working from home.

The Agency is not looking to make redundancies and is committed to take every practical step to avoid job losses as a result of location changes.

The Agency‘s transformation programme is changing the way the Agency works, focusing on a core network of offices and greater use of technology.
