To ask the Secretary of State for Defence how many members of staff within his Department are located within each region outside London; what percentage this constitutes of staff within his Department; and what were the comparable figures in absolute and percentage terms in 1979.

It is not possible to distinguish Ministry of Defence employees employed in London from those in the rest of the south-east prior to 1980. The following table gives the number of full-time equivalent civilian staff, excluding casual staff, employed on 1 January for 1979, 1980 and 1988 in each economic planning region of England, separating London from the rest of the south-east in 1980 and 1988, in Scotland, Wales and Ireland, and overseas and at sea.
