‘Say Yes to consulates’

Have your say

AN increase in consulates in Edinburgh in the wake of a “Yes” vote in the independence referendum would provide a “significant” economic boost, the External Affairs Minister has said.

Humza Yousaf told MSPs: “With independence, we would expect to see a significant expansion in the number of diplomatic missions and scale of diplomatic representation.

“The benefit to the Scottish economy of the creation of these additional jobs would likely be incredibly significant.”
