HC Deb 18 October 1991 vol 196 c256W
Dr. Godman

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer if there are any proposals to transfer certain civil service functions and jobs from London to areas within Strathclyde; and if he will make a statement.

Mrs. Gillian Shephard

Departmental Ministers announce their own decisions on relocation venues once the essential processes of assessment and consultation have been completed. However, I refer the hon. Member to the answer that I gave to the hon. Member for Glasgow, Garscadden (Mr. Dewar) on 24 July at columns603–5 which listed civil service posts located or relocated to Strathclyde since 1979; and identified future plans including a new PAYE office for East Kilbride.
