The creation of additional Government roles in Northern Ireland remains a key priority for the Government and the Northern Ireland Office.

Bringing new roles to Northern Ireland will deliver on our commitment to level up right across the UK and increase prosperity in Northern Ireland. The Secretary of State for Northern Ireland and I continue to work closely with the Minister for Levelling up and other Cabinet colleagues to drive this important work forward.

I am also pleased to advise that my Department has recently relocated to the Government Hub at Erskine House in Belfast City centre.
