§ Mr. David Young
To ask the Secretary of State for Social Security what consideration is being given to moving offices of his Department to Bolton.
§ Mr. Peter Lloyd
We shall shortly be making an announcement setting out our plans to move some local office work away from London. Detailed work is also progressing to identify headquarters functions which might be relocated. This work still has some way to go but we are considering all alternative locations which will help the Department to improve efficiency.
