– Scottish Parliament written question – answered on 21st January 2003.
To ask the Scottish Executive whether it will prioritise public service job relocations to areas of economic and social disadvantage, given any impact that such relocations would have on the area.
A range of factors are considered in evaluating relocation reviews. These include costs, operational effectiveness, the position of staff and social, economic and environmental considerations.
We will be providing further guidance on social and economic factors to make clear that there is a case for giving greater weight to factors such as unemployment and other indicators of deprivation in considering location reviews.
