The Scotland Office is committed to the success of the Commonwealth Games and has played a co-ordinating role in UK Government departments’ vital work on the preparations for the Games in a wide range of areas. Scotland Office Ministers and officials have been in extensive, regular and proactive contact with ministerial colleagues and officials in other UK Government Departments, with Shona Robison MSP (Scottish Government Cabinet Secretary for the Commonwealth Games) and her officials, with Councillor Gordon Matheson and others in Glasgow City Council, with the Glasgow 2014 Organising Committee, and with Police Scotland, and other stakeholders, to ensure that UK Government departments, fulfilling their reserved responsibilities, work as closely as possible with the devolved Administration and the Organising Committee.
