Volume 467: debated on Thursday 22 November 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Enterprise and Regulatory Reform whether his Department plans to move any of its offices to Westmorland and Lonsdale constituency. (166568)

Individual units relocated and planned to be relocated under the Lyons relocations programme are relatively small (fewer than 150 posts). Given the small size of these units, posts have been relocated to existing regional accommodation and it is expected that, from an operational and financial viewpoint further units will be relocated using this rationale. Consequently there are no plans at the present time to move any of the Department’s offices to Westmorland and Lonsdale constituency.
