§ Mr. Bercow
To ask the Secretary of State for International Development what her policy is on the payment of relocation expenses to staff in her Department. 
§ Clare Short
Our policy is to offer support for the additional costs staff necessarily incur in relocating. The level of support, which is currently under review, depends on the nature of the relocation, particularly whether it is in the UK or overseas. Relocation assistance normally includes the costs associated with preparing for relocation, securing accommodation, and a range of travel, freight, storage and other necessary expenses.
