HM Treasury continues to drive forward the government’s levelling up agenda by establishing roles in the Darlington Economic Campus and the 2022-23 Annual Reports and Accounts celebrates our achievement in building sustainable careers outside of London.

The department is unable to answer this question in full due to the use of the term ‘Whitehall’. It is unclear whether this means those based in Whitehall or a term used to describe all Civil Service departments.
