RELOCATION OF GOVERNMENT DEPARTMENTS

That this House believes that the economic playing field is weighted heavily in favour of London and the South East; further believes that relocating government departments around the UK would start to address this imbalance; notes that doing so would bring jobs to areas that sorely need them and provide the Government with a more rounded perspective when creating policies; and calls on the Government to relocate departments to Bristol, Sheffield, Birmingham, Manchester, Nottingham, Newcastle, Leeds and Liverpool.
