Details

The Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) co-ordinates policy towards the Overseas Territories. Following an agreement in the National Security Council in July 2011 each Government Department is responsible for engaging with the Territories in its area of competence and expertise. This paper describes what action the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) has taken on behalf of the Territories and how it will engage with them in future.

DWP is principally a domestic facing UK Government Department, but there are a few issues where the Department can provide advice and support.
