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.
