The UK government has been condemned for closing DWP (Department for Work and Pensions) offices in Clydebank resulting in the loss of more than 200 jobs from the area.

Back-of-house DWP offices are shutting at Clydebank’s Radnor House as part of a wave of 25 office closures across the UK with 668 redundancies nationwide.

West Dunbartonshire’s MP Martin Docherty-Hughes has hit out at the UK government for making the DWP posts in Clydebank redundant during a cost-of-living crisis.

In Scotland, DWP back offices are also being closed at Springburn in Glasgow and Lindsay House in Dundee.

Martin Docherty-Hughes MP said:

“It’s shameful that the UK government is pressing ahead with its decision to shut down DWP offices at Clydebank’s Radnor House.

“Removing these jobs from one of the poorest parts of the country during a cost-of-living crisis is deplorable.

“I’ve raised the impact of local job losses repeatedly with Ministers in parliament, but frankly they couldn’t care less.

“My constituents deserve so much better than the continuing disregard shown by this Westminster government.”
