Jenny Marra Thank you.

Faith Liddell is a former director of Dundee Contemporary Arts, and I think that she would be surprised if I did not ask a Dundee-related question. My home city put in a bid to become UK city of culture last year, but we were pipped at the post, which was unfortunate. Faith tal...

Economy, Energy and Tourism Committee 20 August 2014 : Wednesday, August 20, 2014
Jenny Marra My final question is on the “Thundering Hooves” review, which I see as a strategic and important piece of work, as was the very successful report from 2006.
