Scottish Parliament: Manufacturing ( 9 Mar 2000)

Mary Mulligan: force. The Executive is pursuing that, especially through its desire to raise standards in all our schools. It is also helpful to have a local college that offers support to local industry, as West Lothian College does for its community. Local enterprise companies must work closely with local manufacturers. Most important is the need for employers and employees to work together to...

Scottish Parliament: Further and Higher Education (27 Jan 2000)

Mary Mulligan: Last November, I was honoured to be asked by West Lothian College to make awards to the students there. Many of them were successful, hard-working mature students who were taking this Parliament at its word—they believe that education is for all ages. As Henry McLeish said, a mature student will now be able to take a loan of up to £14,000 and a bursary of £8,000. That will provide mature...

Member for Linlithgow (Mr. Dalyell) mentioned the relocation of West Lothian college from Bathgate to Livingston. The college has not yet assessed the financial and other implications of the option to relocate the entire college. In reaching its...

My fifth question arises from a conversation that I had yesterday with Tony Godden, the head of the West Lothian college, who has severe reservations about the time scale leading to incorporation and how colleges like his—Bathgate and Livingston—can undertake the services previously...

Orders of the Day — Industrial Training Boards (16 Mar 1982)

Mr Tam Dalyell: offer. At the same time, the training boards have had close liaison with local education authorities.
