Lyons Review

Volume 454: debated on Monday 11 December 2006

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer how many jobs have been relocated to (a) the north-east and (b) elsewhere following the Lyons Review; and if he will make a statement. (105120)

Strong progress has been made towards our target of relocating 20,000 civil service posts out of London and the south-east by 2010 and by the end of September 2006 more than 10,500 posts had already been moved to every nation and region in the UK. Of these, more than 640 went to the north-east.
