4. To ask the Scottish Government what action it is taking to strengthen and grow the economy. (S4O-03484)



Meeting of the Parliament 21 August 2014 : Thursday, August 21, 2014
Dennis Robertson I welcome the recent publication of the document “A Jobs Plan for an Independent Scotland”, which looks at the long-term aspects of strengthening our economy and providing opportunities in the labour market.

Economy, Energy and Tourism Committee 20 August 2014 : Wednesday, August 20, 2014

Meeting of the Parliament 19 August 2014 : Tuesday, August 19, 2014
