§ Major NALL
asked the Minister of Labour whether, in view of the experience of Government Departments housed in St. Ermin's Hotel, he will take steps to move the Appointments Department to other premises?
§ Mr. WARDLE
The answer is in the negative. I am not sure what the hon. and gallant Member means by his reference to the "experience of Government Departments housed in St. Ermin's Hotel"; but, if he suggests that the removal of the Appointments Department to other premises would conduce to greater efficiency, I can assure him he is mistaken. The fact is that the headquarters of the Appointments Department is now for the first time since its inception in possession of suitable premises and adequate accommodation.
