Economy, Energy and Tourism Committee 02 April 2014 : Wednesday, April 02, 2014
Joan McAlpine (South Scotland) (SNP) Mr McKay, in your response to Mr Brodie you spoke about the importance of Government in creating the right environment for business, and you made the interesting observation that the private sector in Scotland is too small. Does that not suggest that we need to do something different, and that the U...

Economy, Energy and Tourism Committee 02 April 2014 : Wednesday, April 02, 2014
Joan McAlpine I will try to keep my questions as brief as possible. Perhaps the answers could be kept brief, as well.

From the perspective of the businesses that you represent, what is the preferred currency for an independent Scotland?



Economy, Energy and Tourism Committee 02 April 2014 : Wednesday, April 02, 2014

Economy, Energy and Tourism Committee 02 April 2014 : Wednesday, April 02, 2014
Joan McAlpine Crawford Beveridge from the fiscal commission gave evidence to the committee a few weeks ago. He said that everything will change after the vote; currently, it is all about politics but after the vote things will change. In representing your members after a yes vote, will you argue for a sterling cu...

Economy, Energy and Tourism Committee 02 April 2014 : Wednesday, April 02, 2014
Joan McAlpine I have a question for Mr Clark. You said that tax came out of your survey as the issue of greatest concern to your members. Most businesses can agree that the current tax system is far too complex and inefficient. I know that the Office of Tax Simplification found in 2010 that there were more than 1...

Joan McAlpine Mr Borland?
