Local Government and Communities Committee 22 November 2017 : 22 November 2017


Keith Brown

That is a very good question, which it would be useful to follow up in writing. My immediate thoughts are that we have sought to do just that through the enterprise and skills review with th...



Local Government and Communities Committee 22 November 2017 : 22 November 2017


Keith Brown

I think that everybody who is involved in the process should be undertaking their own risk assessments, and local authorities are no different.



Local Government and Communities Committee 22 November 2017 : 22 November 2017


Keith Brown

May I return quickly to the point about equalities? As you are aware, local authorities have statutory responsibilities on equalities, so they have to factor that in. That is probably how we...



Local Government and Communities Committee 22 November 2017 : 22 November 2017


Keith Brown

Local Government and Communities Committee 22 November 2017 : 22 November 2017


Keith Brown

That is not the case with Ayrshire, because the Ayrshire councils had quite a lot of discussion with us and the UK Government about the things that they wanted to be developed. The earliest ...



Local Government and Communities Committee 22 November 2017 : 22 November 2017


Keith Brown

Kenneth Gibson is right in that we cannot stand still and wait for a deal to be done. We have been active in the space, but perhaps not in the way that we would have been if we had a joined-...



Local Government and Communities Committee 22 November 2017 : 22 November 2017


Keith Brown

Ian Duncan and I do not agree on everything. The UK Government double spends. For example, with regard to the £1.5 billion that is going to Northern Ireland, there is no requirement for matc...
