Dominic Raab – 2021 Comments on Government Jobs Moving to Scotland

The comments made by Dominic Raab, the Foreign Secretary, on 15 March 2021.

There can be no clearer demonstration of our commitment to our joint HQ in East Kilbride than today’s announcement that an extra 500 Foreign Commonwealth and Development Office jobs are coming to Scotland. This will ensure the Civil Service represents all parts of the UK and will be a boost to the Scottish Economy.

Staff at Abercrombie House are at the forefront of delivering the UK’s diplomatic clout, as we prepare to host the G7 and COP26, while supporting the delivery of our £10billion aid budget to continue helping the world’s poorest people.
