SNP MSP SLAMS MAJOR COMMUNICATION ERROR FROM UK GOVERNMENT
Following on from reports that Grangemouth JobCentre had been earmarked for closure in 2018, it has been revealed that this may not now be the case.
Angus MacDonald, MSP for Falkirk East, has received an apology from the Private Secretary to UK Government Minister for Employment, Damien Hines MP, with an admission that they are unaware of how this mix-up occurred.
Commenting on this latest development, Angus MacDonald MSP said:
“Clearly confirmation from the UK Government that Grangemouth JobCentre is to remain open is welcome news and will give a sense of relief to the communities reliant on these services.
“However, the complete omnishambles that we have witnessed in the last few hours would suggest that the DWP is in a far worse state of confusion than they would like to admit.
