The Government has been in contact with Diageo and understands the company has begun a consultation with staff about proposed operational changes. The Government understands this will be a worrying time for Diageo employees and their families.

Job Centre Plus stands ready to assist in the event of redundancies being confirmed, and the Government continues to support the Scottish economy and key sectors such as the food and drinks industry.
