The report of the decentralisation implementation group, DIG, of 19 November 2004 set out 15 organisations to be included in an early movers group and a further group of six possible early movers with a range of indicative dates for decentralisation of third quarter 2006 to third quarter 2008. In line with this there have been no staff moves to the above decentralisation locations to date.
