To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer, pursuant to the contribution of the Financial Secretary to the Treasury on 7 March 2018, Official Report, column 428, how many and what proportion of HMRC staff in International House, Ealing will (a) transfer to an HMRC Regional Centre and (b) complete their career in that location.
HMRC wants to keep as many employees as possible as it moves to its regional centres. It has been clear that if someone can move to a regional centre and has the skills it needs or is able to develop them, there will be a role for them.
For International House, Ealing, current planning data shows that around 107 full-time equivalent people or 52% will transfer to a HMRC regional centre.
HMRC expects that once Crossrail becomes operational, with journey times from Ealing to Stratford of around 30 minutes, this number will increase.
However, HMRC cannot be certain about how many will actually be able to move to a regional centre or the numbers who may complete their career at International House until one-to-one discussions have taken place. These will be held around a year before any move.
