Departmental Location

Volume 504: debated on Thursday 21 January 2010

To ask the Secretary of State for International Development with reference to the answer of 17 June 2009, Official Report, House of Lords, column 210WA, in respect of which countries co-location with the Foreign and Commonwealth Office has been explored but rejected; and for what reasons co-location was rejected in each case. (311568)

Since April 2007, the Department for International Development (DFID) and the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) have explored options to co-locate in Pretoria, Abuja, Bridgetown and Pristina and decided not to proceed because the proposed moves would not provide value for money. The options for these posts are kept under review, along with those for all other posts which are currently not co-located.
