To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, with reference to the oral contribution of the Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State of 17 March 2022, Official Report, column 1032, and the statement that 1,300 people could be involved at sites where there is no other strategic site nearby, if she will make it her policy that no staff will face redundancy.

The Departments priority will be to retain, retrain, and redeploy staff either within DWP, or within other Government Departments in the area before redundancies will be considered. We are making every effort to fully support our staff through this process, and communicating the change with our staff is our priority.
