We have made good progress, in addition to the 650 posts already dispersed throughout Scotland under this policy a number of relocation reviews are nearing conclusion and the results will be announced shortly.

And today I am announcing that around 250 posts from the Edinburgh Headquarters of Scottish Natural Heritage (SNH) will be relocated to Inverness by April 2005. Detailed work in partnership with SNH, the unions and the Executive will take place to ensure a smooth transition.
