Tabled on: 27 January 2017

Damian Hinds:

We are not yet in a position to share an estimated figure due to commercial confidentiality pending completion of legal processes. We expect to make savings by merging the two offices through reduced running costs and making best use of both office space available and taxpayer’s money. Where we are proposing changes to our estate, staff 1-2-1’s are underway to assess impact on individuals and potential costs.
