Scotland Office

It seems the creation of a new Ministry of Justice, from May 9, means yet another administrative change for the old Scottish Office. The current Department for Constitutional Affairs, which includes the Scotland Office, will be subsumed into the new ministry.

Pete Wishart, the SNP's constitutional affairs spokesman, said: "It looks like the Scotland Office has become a sub-branch of a sub-branch. What was once a great department of state appears to have been forgotten in a forced shake-up of the Home Office."
