To ask the Scottish Government what public transport access there is to Social Security Scotland offices in (a) Dundee and (b) Glasgow, and whether these are accessible to disabled people.
Answered by: Shirley-Anne Somerville 3 October 2018
Social Security Scotland’s interim headquarters at Dundee House in Dundee and the Glasgow office at 220 High Street are both situated close to main bus routes and mainline rail stations.
Proximity to public transport links, frequency and volume of services and the availability of ground floor public spaces were key criterion in the analytical process which rated the shortlisted buildings in each city.
The interim Headquarters in Dundee and Glasgow office are fully compliant with Equalities Act legislation.
