HC Deb 17 June 1975 vol 893 c426W
Mrs. Winifred Ewing

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland how many buildings in or around London are used by his Department; if he will list these; and how many persons are employed in each.

Mr. William Ross

One only; Dover House, Whitehall, where there is a permanent staff of 62. Dover House is also the ministerial headquarters of myself and my colleagues when in London. It is also used by other staff of my Department, based elsewhere, when their duties require their presence in London. All other Scottish Office staff, totalling 7,514, are based in Scotland.
