GOV.UK is the new place for corporate and policy information from the Office of the Advocate General.
The Office of the Advocate General (OAG) has now moved its content to the new GOV.UK website joining our colleagues from the Scotland Office. All remaining ministerial departments are due to move over in the next few months.
GOV.UK makes it simpler, clearer and faster to find out:
- how government works
- what the government is doing
- how you can get involved
You can now see information from multiple government departments grouped by topics. For example, you can see how policies from OAG and other departments are contributing to smooth working of the devolution settlement in Scotland.
Departments and agencies that have moved to GOV.UK are publishing their policies according to the outcome the government is trying to achieve.
For example, the Office of the Advocate General contributes to policies on:
- Informing the debate on Scotland’s constitutional future
- Facilitating a legal, fair and decisive referendum in Scotland
- Maintaining and strengthening the Scottish devolution settlement
For each policy, you can see a list of all the related announcements, consultations and publications in one list, called ‘latest’. This makes it easy for you to track what is happening on the policies that interest you, for example, Scotland analysis: devolution and the implications of Scottish independence.
More about Inside Government and GOV.UK
Inside Government is still a work in progress, with only some organisations live. Work will continue as other departments and organisations, many hundreds in total, move their information to GOV.UK. This will happen in batches and will be completed during 2014.
