Since 2010 the Department has had considerable success in reducing the cost of its estate. We have saved:

  • £16 million per year by surrendering seven leasehold offices;
  • £24 million per year for Government by moving the Department to Marsham Street;
  • £10.9 million per year by subletting surplus leasehold office space.
