§ Mr. Bercow
To ask the Secretary of State for Wales what his policy is on the payment of relocation expenses to staff in his Department. 
§ Mr. Paul Murphy
The permanent civil servants in my Department are all secondees from elsewhere and so would ordinarily qualify for (temporary) detached duty terms rather than (permanent) relocation. If ever it became appropriate, however, the Wales Office would pay relocation expenses in accordance with the approach set out in the Terms and Conditions of Service of the National Assembly for Wales.
