Humza Yousaf Appoints First Cabinet mdi-fullscreen

Scotland’s new First Minister Humza Yousaf has hit the ground running and appointed his first Cabinet, claiming it represents the SNP’s top priorities, including “tackling child poverty, improving public services and building a fairer, greener economy”. Here’s the full list:

  • Shona Robison – Finance and Deputy First Minister
  • Angela Constance – Justice and Home Affairs
  • Jenny Gilruth – Education and Skills
  • Mairi Gougeon – Rural Affairs, Land Reform and Islands
  • Neil Gray – Wellbeing Economy, Fair Work and Energy
  • Mairi McAllan – Net Zero and Just Transition
  • Michael Matheson – NHS Recovery, Health and Social Care
  • Angus Robertson remains Constitution, External Affairs and Culture
  • Shirley Anne-Somerville – Secretary for Social Justice

Humza has added “NHS Recovery” to the Health Secretary title, presumably to reflect the urgent care it needs after his own tenure leading that department…
