THE Treasury department re-locating to Teesside Airport area sounds fine (Echo, Oct 5).

At least three decades ago I recall the National Maritime Museum was to move to Hartlepool. Being interested in old ship research, I was hoping for a position.

Museum staff refused to move, and there was a similar reluctance from another government department to move to Newcastle.

Are these jobs new or a wholesale relocation of London staff?

Also I fancy there will be massive traffic problem unless a direct new road comes off the A66.

Top level mandarins are powerful, probably more so that Rishi Sunak.
