Volume 712: debated on Thursday 9 July 2009


Asked by

To ask Her Majesty's Government whether they plan to move the offices of the Ministry of Justice outside London. [HL4639]

The Ministry of Justice is, in line with government policies on relocating Civil Service jobs out of central London, investigating the feasibility of establishing a new location for a regional administrative headquarters.

We are working to identify the most cost-effective means of providing support and administrative services for the ministry and we will be co-ordinating this work with other government departments. As soon as we have reached a decision, the Justice Secretary will inform Parliament.
