To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer if there are any plans to relocate any part of the civil service to north Devon.
I refer my hon. Friend to the reply that I gave to my hon. Friend the Member for Richmond and Barnes (Mr. Hanley) on 17 January 1990, Official Report, c. 289-90. Departmental Ministers will announce their own decisions on relocation venues once the essential processes of assessment and consultation have been completed.
