Dover House

Dover House (the Scotland Office) was open to the public today as part of the annual London Open House. The tour was pretty comprehensive and took in the Secretary of State's room as well as other ministerial rooms downstairs. It seems that Government buildings have undergone a bit of rejig over the summer recess, so from next week the Leader of the House of Commons (Jack Straw) will be based in Dover House, as will his deputy, Nigel Griffiths (an Edinburgh MP). The Advocate-General for Scotland, Neil Davidson QC, has also moved from a downstairs room to the one pictured here. I know, how sad am I.
