Report Number: 27194 Date: 21/6/2017

Title: Ian Duncan made government minister (1 of 2)

Of interest to: Scotland

Script details:
Ian Duncan has been granted a peerage and will become a minister. The Conservative MEP was narrowly beaten in the race to become MP for Perth and North Perthshire earlier this month. But now he is to leave Brussels anyway to become a junior minister in Theresa May's government. Before the appointment was confirmed, Nicola Sturgeon tweeted: “This should not be allowed. Rejected by the voters - but installed in government anyway, via the unelected House of Lords.” But Ian Duncan insists there is a long tradition of bringing people into government from outside Westminster. And, when it comes to Brexit, he says he stands ready to work with the administration in Edinburgh.
