Public Audit Committee 25 June 2014 : Wednesday, June 25, 2014
Mary Scanlon There is also the point about training provider performance.



Public Audit Committee 25 June 2014 : Wednesday, June 25, 2014
Mary Scanlon Not only did SDS not answer the first question, but it did not answer the third one, which was a significant question that asked about

“who is responsible for acting on and reporting concerns about training provider performance”.

I brought along Audit Scotland’s report, which ...

Public Audit Committee 25 June 2014 : Wednesday, June 25, 2014
Mary Scanlon Sorry to be the awkward one again, but I was a bit disappointed in the response that we got from Skills Development Scotland. The need to align modern apprenticeships with the Government’s priorities formed quite an important part of the report. The cabinet secretary responded to that point very wel...

Public Audit Committee 25 June 2014 : Wednesday, June 25, 2014
Mary Scanlon I was surprised to learn that we must wait another three months for Glasgow Kelvin College to complete the task of looking at the remuneration committee of the college board. The college’s submission also makes a point of restating

“the commitment of Glasgow Kelvin College to the highest ...

Public Audit Committee 25 June 2014 : Wednesday, June 25, 2014
Mary Scanlon I cannot remember the 2001 act, but I seem to remember that either the council had a duty to provide or individuals had a right to ask.

Public Audit Committee 25 June 2014 : Wednesday, June 25, 2014
Mary Scanlon One of my questions has been answered in the responses to Ken Macintosh. The point is that self-directed support is not new; it was part of the Regulation of Care (Scotland) Act 2001, and regulations on direct payments were made in 2003. The approach is 11 years old and we are now four years into a ...

Public Audit Committee 25 June 2014 : Wednesday, June 25, 2014
Mary Scanlon When there is no ring fencing, which we all agree with, the legal obligations and priorities must come first.



Public Audit Committee 25 June 2014 : Wednesday, June 25, 2014
Mary Scanlon Those are the major challenges.



Public Audit Committee 25 June 2014 : Wednesday, June 25, 2014
Mary Scanlon I note that that was one of your key messages.

My final question is about something that you said in your opening remarks. You mentioned the financial challenges, which are not new. You also mentioned the ageing population, which is not new, either—I have a lot more grey hair than I had ...

Public Audit Committee 25 June 2014 : Wednesday, June 25, 2014
Mary Scanlon I would like to ask more about behaviours and training. In paragraph 6 of your key messages, you talk about the need for councillors to achieve

“a balance between their council responsibilities and their wider political activities.”

I am not pointing a finger at any political p...
