Staff in the Scotland Office are on loan from the Scottish Executive or the Department for Constitutional Affairs (DCA) who retain any self-declared and voluntary information on disability. The Office's recent Annual Report indicated that we have a small number of staff with disabilities but, for privacy reasons, the actual numbers are considered confidential.
