Meeting of the Parliament 21 August 2014 : Thursday, August 21, 2014
Murdo Fraser (Mid Scotland and Fife) (Con) Listening to Fergus Ewing’s response, one would have thought that Sir Ian Wood had come out in support of independence, which he has not. When did Sir Ian go from a much respected oil expert to someone who does not know what he is talking about?

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

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