§ Mr. David Marshall
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what plans there are to build a new office of his Department in Shettleston; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Lyell
The Department is considering replacing the existing overcrowded office at Springfield road, Parkhead, with a new office in the Shettleston area of Glasgow. Siting the proposed office in Shettleston will make it more accessible for the public it serves. Some other minor boundary changes affecting neighbouring local offices are also being considered.
