Economy, Jobs and Fair Work Committee 17 April 2018

Agenda: Interests, Decision on Taking Business in Private, Scotland’s Economic Performance



Good morning, and welcome to the Economy, Jobs and Fair Work Committee’s 12th meeting in 2018. I remind everyone in the public gallery to switch any electrical devices to silent so as not to interfere with proceedings. We have apologies from committee members Kezia Dugdale, Jamie Halcro Johnston and Dean Lockhart. I welcome Tom Mason as a substitute for the latter. At item 1 on our agenda, I invite Mr Mason to declare any relevant interests.

I remain a member of Aberdeen City Council, and my small consultancy firm deals extensively with China.

Are there any declarations of interest from other committee members?

Yes, convener—it will not have escaped your attention that I, like Paul Sheerin, am a director of Strathleven Regeneration CIC, a community interest company, although I am sure that that will not make me any kinder to him.

All right; thank you.
