§ Dr. David Clark
To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland what was the average percentage increase in salaries of non-industrial civil servants, excluding members of the senior Civil Service, in his Department for 1999–2000; and to what extent the pay awards were staged. 
§ Mr. Sarwar
To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland what the Government's policy is regarding distributing Civil Service posts more widely across Scotland. 
§ Dr. Reid
Relocation of civil servants is a matter for individual departments and agencies. As I announced at the Select Committee on Scottish Affairs on 21 July 1999, I have established my main office, and the bulk of my small staff, in Glasgow.
The policy in relation to the relocation of civil servants who work for the Scottish Executive and related public bodies is devolved and is a matter for the Scottish Parliament. The Scottish Executive made announcements on their approach to location and relocation of public service jobs in Scotland on 15 September 1999 and 6 July 2000.
