Answered on

Since taking office on 24 July 2019, the Foreign Secretary has not had an opportunity to meet the Scottish Government's Cabinet Secretary for Tourism, Culture and External Affairs, Fiona Hyslop. There are no meetings currently scheduled. However, in recent months the Foreign & Commonwealth Office (FCO) has supported a number of visits to promote the Scottish Government's international priorities, such as Cabinet Secretary Fiona Hyslop's recent visit in October to Japan for the Rugby World Cup.

The FCO works in partnership with the Offices of the Secretaries of State for Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, and the Devolved Administrations, on our international priorities. So far this year our Posts have been involved in over 25 visits from Ministers from the Devolved Administrations.
