Meeting of the Parliament 14 November 2018 [Draft] : 14 November 2018

Public Audit and Post-legislative Scrutiny Committee 01 November 2018 : 01 November 2018


Alex Neil

Public Audit and Post-legislative Scrutiny Committee 01 November 2018 : 01 November 2018


Alex Neil

I want to go back and follow up on Mr Coffey’s questioning.



Public Audit and Post-legislative Scrutiny Committee 01 November 2018 : 01 November 2018


Alex Neil
