Drew Smith, Glasgow Labour MSP, has asked for clarification on which stations could be closed or have reduced opening hours as part of the re-organisation of the police service in Scotland.
Kenny MacAskill, Justice Secretary, said station opening times were a matter for the police but said he was committed to maintaining police numbers.
Referring to a review of police station service delivery, Mr Smith said: "Over the summer, Chief Constable Steve House wrote to members about Police Scotland's review of the number and opening hours of police counters in police stations.
"The chief constable specifically highlighted the budget that he has been given by Mr MacAskill.
"Can the cabinet secretary confirm whether any Glasgow police stations are on a list for reduced services."
Mr MacAskill said: "The issue is an operational matter for the chief constable of the Police Service of Scotland.
"Our priority is maintaining the 1000 additional officers and continuing the outstanding record of a 39-year low in recorded crime.
"I think Mr Smith forgets that the review is looking at the level of public service that occurs at police offices, and not necessarily at closure of police stations.
"However, that will be a matter for Mr House to consider and will ultimately be a matter for the Scottish Police Authority."
He said that recorded crime levels had fallen to a 39-year low and said the Scottish Government would be continuing to give the support to make sure there was a visible police presence in communities
Mr MacAskill was also asked if a recent meeting with Mr House provided any detail about sex offenders who had gone missing from the monitoring programme.
Paul Martin, Labour MSP for Glasgow Provan, asked how many registered sex offenders were unaccounted for.
Mr MacAskill said he was not able to provide that detail.
