Question for Scotland Office

What steps he is taking to promote the advantages of Scotland remaining part of the UK.

Scotland benefits greatly from being part of a strong United Kingdom, as does the UK as a whole.

The most obvious recent examples of our strength as a union are the unprecedented economic support offered to people and businesses in Scotland throughout the current pandemic and the rapid supply of vaccinations to all parts of the UK currently taking place.

Neither of these would have been possible if Scotland was not part of the UK.
