The government in the UK has confirmed it is to close 10 jobcentre plus offices across Scotland, including six in Glasgow. The Department for Work and Pensions said online applications meant its buildings were used less. jobcentres in Glasgow's Castlemilk and in Cambuslang, South Lanarkshire, which were due to shut, have won a reprieve following local campaigns. Across Scotland, job centres will also be closed in Port Glasgow, Broxburn, Alexandria and Edinburgh. The DWP said its plans reflected the fact that eight out of 10 claims for Jobseeker's Allowance and 99% of applications for the Universal Credit full service were now made online.
