Following the 2004 Lyons review, which raised the issue of moving civil servants from London and the south-east, the Treasury Group (then consisting of HM Treasury, the Office of Government Commerce, and the Debt Management Office) committed to relocate 26.5 full-time equivalent posts by March 2008 as part of the 2004 spending review. This number was achieved by March 2007 and was followed by moving another 11.5 full-time equivalent posts in 2007-08.
