§ Mr. Sillars
asked the Minister for the Civil Service how many Civil Service jobs have been dispersed from the London area since June 1970, and of these how many went to the South-West Scotland Planning Region.
§ Mr. Kenneth Baker
Information is not available in precisely this form. Between April 1970 and October 1972, 6,500 Civil Service posts were dispersed from the London area. None of these went to the South-West Scotland Planning Region although 1,900 were dispersed to Scotland in this period.
