asked the Minister for the Civil Service how many new jobs have been created by the Government in the North-West region in each year since April 1974.

Year ending

It is planned to disperse nearly 5,000 more Civil Service posts from London to the North-West region as a result of the Government's dispersal programme announced on 30 July 1974. In addition, some 500 new posts are to be set up in the region.
