  • Oral Answers to Questions — Cabinet Office: Government Estate 15 Jun 2016

    My hon. Friend will be pleased to know that since 2015 the Government estate strategy has ensured that running costs have fallen by 750 million. We have raised some 1.8 billion in council receipts and reduced the estate size by nearly a quarter. This is a huge achievement and in terms of space it makes the UK Government one of the most efficient organisations in the world.
  • Oral Answers to Questions — Cabinet Office: Government Estate 15 Jun 2016

    My hon. Friend, as so often, hits the nail on the head. A huge Government programme has ensured that available public sector land is used to build more houses for our country.
  • Oral Answers to Questions — Cabinet Office: Government Estate 15 Jun 2016

    The Government are getting on very well with it: the number of civil servant buildings in central London has gone down hugely. We have created hundreds of thousands of jobs all over the country— 95,000 new jobs in the last year in the north of England alone—and what matters is what kinds of jobs we are creating and how many people are being employed.
