約翰-斯溫尼將頂替財政部長凱特-福布斯的產假

蘇格蘭政府已經確認,凱特-福布斯在休產假期間,其財政部長的角色將由約翰-斯溫尼來擔任。

這項工作將是斯溫尼先生通常擔任的副首席部長和負責Covid恢復的內閣秘書以外的工作。

福布斯女士在休假期間將保留財政和經濟內閣秘書的頭銜。

她將在返回時恢復其職責,具體日期尚未商定。

第一部長尼古拉-斯特金(Nicola Sturgeon)在今年早些時候確認,歡迎福布斯女士回來,並說生孩子 "不應該成為某人職業生涯的障礙,尤其是擔任高級領導職務的女性"。

福布斯女士之前說,她和她的丈夫阿拉斯戴爾-麥克倫南(去年7月在丁沃爾結婚)"期待着迎接我們家庭的新成員"。

她確認她的辦公室和團隊仍然可以幫助她的斯凱、洛查伯和巴德諾克選區的居民。

在德里克-麥凱於2020年突然辭職後,福布斯女士成為第一位女性財政部長,並被認為可能成為未來的第一部長。

雖然福布斯女士將是第一位休產假的內閣秘書,但艾琳-坎貝爾在2014年12月擔任兒童和青年部長時休了產假。


Kate Forbes's role as finance secretary is to be covered by John Swinney while she is on maternity leave, the Scottish government has confirmed.

The job will be in addition to Mr Swinney's usual portfolio of Deputy First Minister and cabinet secretary for Covid recovery.

Ms Forbes will retain the title of cabinet secretary for finance and economy while she is off.

She will resume her duties when she returns on a date not yet agreed.

First Minister Nicola Sturgeon confirmed earlier in the year that Ms Forbes would be welcome to return, saying having a baby "should never be a barrier to someone's career, especially women in senior leadership roles".

Ms Forbes previously said she and her husband Alasdair MacLennan - who she married in Dingwall last July - were "looking forward to welcoming a new member of our family".

She confirmed her office and team would still be available to help residents in her Skye, Lochaber and Badenoch constituency.

Ms Forbes became the first female finance secretary after the sudden resignation of Derek Mackay in 2020, and has been tipped as a possible future first minister.

Although Ms Forbes will be the first cabinet secretary to take maternity leave, Aileen Campbell took maternity leave while serving as minister for children and young people in December 2014.
