Dennis Robertson (Aberdeenshire West) (SNP)

Will the First Minister provide reassurance that all the appropriate steps have been taken to ensure safety and wellbeing at Donaldson’s school, Scotland’s national school for the deaf?



Economy, Energy and Tourism Committee 19 November 2014 : Wednesday, November 19, 2014

You said that the fees have been frozen until April 2017. Have you been lobbied to do that, or have you simply decided that the move is good for the registration process and provides a good incentive to move forward?

Do the universities have a specific role in showing off what they have created in galleries? I am thinking of the two art schools. Glasgow and Edinburgh have probably the two best art and design schools in Scotland—I apologise to Gray’s.

The theme common to all your statements is that you are trying to work through a complex infrastructure.

Professor Follett referred to the threshold of £400,000 for Scottish Enterprise account-managed companies. Should we be looking at ways of reducing the threshold for companies to get Scottish Enterprise’s account management?

There should be no complexity; there should basically be a portal, whether it be for crafts, film or gaming, for people to go through for appropriate advice to help them move forward and access appropriate funding.

Just in the past few days, open project funding from the Government was announced of £30 million over three years. I wonder whether that source of funding could be open to your sectors. Could Professor Follett comment first?
