To ask the Secretary of State for Justice how many posts in his Department have been relocated from London to each other region in each of the last 10 years.

The Ministry of Justice is committed to reducing costs and to exacting the greatest possible value from its resources. As part of the Estate Transformation Programme, the Ministry continues to promote flexible workspace in its central London estate with a 70% desking ratio (seven desks to 10 full time equivalent employees).

Information about the total number of posts relocated from London to each region is not recorded centrally and could be obtained only at disproportionate cost. However, I can inform the hon. Member that since April 2010, around 500 posts from the Office of the Public Guardian, an executive agency of the Ministry, have relocated from London to Birmingham.
