Answer

Today, the First Minister will announce that Scotland’s new social security agency will be configured over two locations with a headquarters located in Dundee and a second major site in Glasgow, and will be enhanced by a local presence across Scotland. I will provide more detail when I make a statement to Parliament on “Developing Social Security for Scotland's People” at 14.20 on Tuesday, 19 September.
