We are clear that the Government needs to be less London-centric and should reflect the nation it serves. The Cabinet Office’s Places for Growth programme has been established to drive the relocation of roles out of London into the regions and nations of the United Kingdom.

So far the Programme has identified over 3,000 roles in arms length bodies for relocation, over a phased timetable and we will continue to push ahead with these plans as part of the next Spending Review.
