§ Mr. Arthur Lewis
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what action he has taken to site offices and staffs in Scotland to deal with matters resultant upon Great Britain's entry into the Common Market; and how many new jobs have resulted from these activities at the latest convenient stated date.
§ Mr. Gordon Campbell
So far as my own Departments are concerned, I foresee the need for about 50 additional198W posts over the next few years, all of them in Scotland, to deal with work arising from United Kingdom membership of the European Communities. As regards other bodies, I shall seek to ensure that, in all appropriate cases, jobs which it is practicable to perform in Scotland are located there.
