Media enquiries

We operate a central newsdesk during office hours and an overnight/weekend duty service.

During office hours

The newsdesk handles all media enquiries including requests for statements, interviews, facts, figures, speeches or forward diary information.

The newsdesk operates from 0900 to 1730 Monday to Thursday and from 0900 to 1700 on Friday.

Journalists should call 0131 244 0222.

Out of office hours

Outside these hours and at weekends, journalists should contact the duty communications officer on 0300 244 4000.

Calls are logged by security staff and the duty officer will call back as soon as possible.

If you are not a member of the media, please call the Central Enquiries Unit on 0300 244 4000 or email
