lower weight times on help lines and

new ways. Changes to H mercy are an

0:00:000:00:06

important part of this transmission

process. Moving from a large, widely

0:00:060:00:12

dispersed varied in size across the

UK to eight ounce train network of

0:00:120:00:18

modern regional hubs. In November

2015, HMRC announced that in the

0:00:180:00:22

following ten years it would bring

its employees together and 13

0:00:220:00:25

regional offices all in locations

where it already has a significant

0:00:250:00:30

presence such as it does in

Birmingham. This location of teams

0:00:300:00:35

across HMRC will lead to increased

collaboration of Fox ability of only

0:00:350:00:40

HMRC to provide more effective and

efficient services to the taxpayer.

0:00:400:00:43

It is but support in-place to help

its workforce through these changes.

0:00:430:00:48

In Birmingham, the regional centre

will be situated in the heart of the

0:00:480:00:52

city at three Irina Centro. It will

be home to 3600 civil servants with

0:00:520:00:58

two thousand 650 H mercy staff

moving in from 13 offices around the

0:00:580:01:02

West Midlands region to undertake a

wide range of key tax professional

0:01:020:01:08

operational delivery roles. The

first of HMRC's regional centres

0:01:080:01:13

opening in Croydon in July this

year, construction is on the way --

0:01:130:01:17

underway in Bristol, Cardiff,

Belfast and Leeds. All of these

0:01:170:01:22

offices will be a modern, friendly

and located in the heart of the

0:01:220:01:26

committee. Mosul be shared with

other departments and all have been

0:01:260:01:29

size for the future needs of HMRC

and the taxpayer. In addition to the

0:01:290:01:35

13 regional centres, HMRC will keep

seven transitional sites opened

0:01:350:01:38

across the UK for several years

where it helps retain key skills

0:01:380:01:41

during the period of transition as

was five specialist sites that

0:01:410:01:45

cannot be done elsewhere. HMRC will

retain Telfair as a site for

0:01:450:01:52

specialist visual teams. HMRC will

ensure disruptions to his business

0:01:520:02:02

operations is minimised. The Burnley

regional centre will be opened in

0:02:020:02:06

late 2020. The move to regional

centres will remove savings in the

0:02:060:02:13

taxpayer of £300 billion of to 2025

and an annual cash savings of £74

0:02:130:02:17

million in the taxpayer of £300

billion of the 2025 and an annual

0:02:170:02:20

cash savings of 74 million thousand

2025 rises more than £90 million by

0:02:200:02:23

2028. It also avoids cost of £75

million a year from 2021 while the

0:02:230:02:28

current PF I contract comes to an

end. But it is important to stress

0:02:280:02:33

that this is not about cost savings

in Britain. HMRC new office

0:02:330:02:38

structure will allow people to

develop more fulfilling careers.

0:02:380:02:41

There will be a far wider for a new

jobs in different career paths to

0:02:410:02:45

senior roles as well as a wide range

of work will be based in single

0:02:450:02:48

sites. These modern buildings will

unquestionably develop -- deliver a

0:02:480:02:53

better working environment for H

mercy working environment. These

0:02:530:02:57

locations also increased HMRC to as

an employer enabling to recruit and

0:02:570:03:04

train the next generation of gender

-- of her vessels. This is

0:03:040:03:09

important. H mercy was due all can

to keep his skills, knowledge and

0:03:090:03:18

policy to minimise and redundancies.

The vast majority of HMRC employees

0:03:180:03:22

are within reasonable daily travel

over regional centre, special site

0:03:220:03:27

or transitional site. That is

deliberate, Mr Speaker. Decisions to

0:03:270:03:31

locate or based on the modelling of

where says his staffer base. HMRC

0:03:310:03:36

estimates that 90% of its workforce

will be of tumour to one of its

0:03:360:03:40

regional centres are complete their

career and their current office. For

0:03:400:03:42

those currently based in waterfront

offices, the travel time is between

0:03:420:03:48

35 to 55 minutes by car or train.

That said, HMRC recognises that

0:03:480:03:55

individual employees have distinct

personal circumstances and not

0:03:550:03:58

everyone will feel able to move to a

regional centre even where they may

0:03:580:04:02

be reasonably close by. It has been

structured support in plays and a

0:04:020:04:06

point I know that the honourable

gentleman from Dudley North

0:04:060:04:11

specifically asked me, structures

are in place to help those who can

0:04:110:04:13

move and those who cannot. One year

ahead of any move, anyone affected

0:04:130:04:18

has the opportunity to discuss their

personal circumstances with their

0:04:180:04:21

manager to talk there any particular

needs to be taken into account when

0:04:210:04:25

making decisions or any help they

need to make the move. For instance,

0:04:250:04:29

by helping them with additional

travel costs. This is a tried and

0:04:290:04:34

tested process was more than 10,000

of these conversations held an HMRC

0:04:340:04:38

over the last two years. There is a

range of support for those unable to

0:04:380:04:41

make the move to a regional centre

as well. HMRC run the programme of

0:04:410:04:47

training, workshops, webinars and

coaching which includes advice on

0:04:470:04:51

transferable skills since starting

it has been offered to around 800

0:04:510:04:57

employees at HMRC will continue to

provide this support.

0:04:570:05:09

There'll be excited to work in the

March 2001 at that point that's

0:05:580:06:03

credits are expected to move fully

across the universe of credits of

0:06:030:06:05

the tax credits will -- currently

undertaken in Maryvale -- Mary help.

0:06:050:06:13

As a tax credits cases load deep --.

It will be the case, Mr Sir to the

0:06:130:06:22

HMRC will be working with those that

every opportunity will make a

0:06:220:06:29

successful move into a reallocated

employment. And the members

0:06:290:06:36

specifically asked if I would be

happy to meet with him and some of

0:06:360:06:40

the staffer then he has been and I

can certainly be more happy to do

0:06:400:06:45

that perhaps in Westminster would

probably be most appropriate given

0:06:450:06:49

that perhaps the member firm Preston

and indeed the member from Dudley

0:06:490:06:54

South would also wish to join him. I

was a baby very open. Finally, Mr

0:06:540:07:05

Speaker, the honourable member from

Dudley North asked about the

0:07:050:07:08

specifics support that would be

provided for those of might not be

0:07:080:07:12

able to make the move from Maryhill

to the new centre in the centre of

0:07:120:07:19

Birmingham. As I have said, all

staff will have one-to-one

0:07:190:07:23

discussion with their manager and a

year in advance about any office

0:07:230:07:27

move that affects them. And due to

discuss their personal

0:07:270:07:30

circumstances. If they're not there

within reasonable daily travel, and

0:07:300:07:37

what support may be needed to enable

them. And for those who cannot move,

0:07:370:07:41

there will be financial support for

those, who can move,. There will be

0:07:410:07:46

some help for those for the daily

time of the five years. HMRC is

0:07:460:07:51

supporting those who cannot move by

seeking and what opportunities and

0:07:510:07:55

other departments. On the notice, I

will conclude this, Mr Speaker.

0:07:550:08:02

Order. The question is this House do

now adjourn all is those who do say

0:08:020:08:08

I've. On the contrary, no. I believe

the eyes max habit. Order. Order.

0:08:080:08:13

Order. -- I'm -- Eisenach.

0:08:130:08:23

the eyes max habit. Order. Order.

Order. -- I'm -- Eisenach.
