HC Deb 09 November 1978 vol 957 cc333-4W
Mr. Teddy Taylor

asked the Secretary of State for Defence if he will make a statement on the sections and location of those parts of his Department which are to be dispersed to Glasgow; and when he envisaged that the dispersal will take place.

Dr. Gilbert

As regards the areas of work to be dispersed to Glasgow I have nothing to add to the answer given to my hon. Friend the Member for Glasgow, Garscadden (Mr. Dewar) on 1st August 1978 —[Vol. 955, c.305–6.]

The dispersal dates are those contained in the revised timetable announced by the Lord Privy Seal on 29th July 1977, namely, 1,500 posts for Anderston by 1983–84 and up to 4,000 posts for St. Enoch by 1985–86 to 1987–88.
