PLANNED CLOSURE OF JOB CENTRES IN GLASGOW

That this House is concerned at the planned office closures of jobcentres in Glasgow; is further concerned that the proposals would see eight of the 16 jobcentre offices across Glasgow close, affecting some 68,000 people in receipt of jobseeker's allowance, employment and support allowance and universal credit; believes that this decision will result in the poorest communities not being serviced by a jobcentre and make it even harder for those seeking employment to get support and result in tens of thousands of people having to travel further at additional cost to attend their appointments; notes that those closures raise questions on the futures of Department for Work and Pensions staff in Scotland and also how remaining jobcentres will cope with increased numbers of claimants; and calls on the Government to reconsider its plans and ensure that all jobcentres in Glasgow are covered by a public consultation.
