No member of staff directly employed by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) is paid less than the Living Wage. The FCO does not have any premises in Scotland where staff directly, or through contracts, are employed.

We do not hold details of individual staff salaries for our suppliers and this information could only be obtained at disproportionate cost.
