HC Deb 08 May 1989 vol 152 cc330-1W
Mr. Wray

To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will restore in 1989 moneys the budgets of the Department of Social Security offices in Glasgow, Provan to 1988–89 levels.

Mr. Peter Lloyd

I have been asked to reply.

No. Allocations were made in accordance with a national allocation formula which applied to all local offices. A note explaining the basis on which the 1989–90 allocations were calculated is in the Library.

The allocations of both Glasgow, Provan and Glasgow, Parkhead local offices represent £114 per head of their respective income support caseloads compared with the average allocation per head for Great Britain of £46.
