The DWP should think again over plans to shut half the city’s jobcentres, Glasgow City Council has said.Anniesland job centre is just one of eight centres across the city up for the axe, meaning jobseekers will be forced to travel further afield to meet with the DWP staff.

The council has submitted a response to the consultation outlining problems with travel, costs and difficulty accessing and using internet services when local centres are shut.

It also passed a motion with cross party support condemning the proposals when first published.
