Michael Moore MP has been appointed as the new Secretary of State for Scotland.
The newly appointed Secretary of State for Scotland Michael Moore said: “I am very happy to have been appointed although I obviously wish it had happened under different circumstances. David Laws remains an important colleague of mine and I hope to see him return to government before long.”
“I am looking forward to the many challenges ahead as I take Scotland’s interests to the heart of government. I will also uphold the respect agenda which has been ably put in motion by the new coalition government already. Secretary of State I want to hear the concerns of Scots across the country and I look forward to getting on with the job.”
