Angela Constance has been named as the Minister for Youth Employment, following the First Minister's announcement of the new post last week.

Aileen Campbell will move to Ms Constance's previous role of Minister for Children and Young People.

Ms Campbell said:

"The importance of the early years is crucial. We must support the very best in developing our children, so that they grow up into caring, responsible adults who make a positive contribution to our society and the economy. Working with partners, we will do all we can to give every child the best start in life and that we get it right for every child, including the most vulnerable."
