Employment: Glasgow

Volume 508: debated on Wednesday 7 April 2010

12. To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland what recent discussions he has had on levels of employment in Glasgow. (325098)

In January I set up a taskforce to look at the problems of worklessness in Glasgow. I received the final report on 25 March which I discussed with the chair of the taskforce, Professor Pamela Gillies, Principal of Glasgow Caledonian university. I have had a number of discussions with the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions about the work of the taskforce.
