asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what changes in the staff of the Location of Offices Bureau he anticipates following the bureau's new remit.
The implications of the proposed change in the terms of reference of the Location of Offices Bureau on the Bureau's staffing arrangements are currently under consideration, but no immediate change in the number of staff employed by the Bureau is envisaged.
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if recent applicants who have been refused office development permits by the Location of Offices Bureau now have their applications automatically reconsidered following the bureau's new remits.
Office development permits are my responsibility, not that of the Location of Offices Bureau. It is normal for unsuccessful applicants to renew their applications, if they wish to do so, in the light of changes in office development control policy.
