Public Audit and Post-legislative Scrutiny Committee 08 February 2018 [Draft} : 08 February 2018


Alex Neil

But that represents a change of attitude. I remember a time when HMRC would not appear before a committee of the Scottish Parliament. As you rightly say, the peop...



Public Audit and Post-legislative Scrutiny Committee 08 February 2018 [Draft} : 08 February 2018


Alex Neil

I think that we need to be very explicit about that. We should explain to the reserved bodies that that is how we intend to operate. As a parliamentary committee,...



Public Audit and Post-legislative Scrutiny Committee 08 February 2018 [Draft} : 08 February 2018


Alex Neil

Public Audit and Post-legislative Scrutiny Committee 01 February 2018 [Draft] : 01 February 2018


Alex Neil

I presume that meeting the state aid rules would require a significant cut in subsidies.



Public Audit and Post-legislative Scrutiny Committee 01 February 2018 [Draft] : 01 February 2018


Alex Neil

How do we get around those rules?



Public Audit and Post-legislative Scrutiny Committee 01 February 2018 [Draft] : 01 February 2018


Alex Neil

It is good that you are doing scenario planning. My final question relates to that. Is it the case that, if we remained inside the single market as it is, we woul...



Public Audit and Post-legislative Scrutiny Committee 01 February 2018 [Draft] : 01 February 2018


Alex Neil

Later this year, the United Kingdom will, it is hoped, finalise a deal on Brexit. Transport Scotland’s procurement is very much governed by single market rules th...
