New home for SNP nearer to the parliament

THE SNP is to move into new headquarters early next year, it has been announced.

The party will leave its current base at McDonald Road in the Capital, its home for the past eight years, for new headquarters much nearer the Scottish Parliament, in the city's Holyrood area.

SNP business convener Angus Robertson MP confirmed the move to the party's National Council in Perth.

Its new base will be at Gordon Lamb House on Jackson's Close.
