Ruth George: I have worked with major UK retailers for almost 20 years, and there has been growing distortion in the market, as between brick-and-mortar retailers and online retailers, on business rates in particular.

Scottish Parliament: Scottish Sports Association (16 Jan 2018)

Elizabeth Smith: ...agencies. The Scottish Government has rightly outlined the importance of sport in relation to the physical and mental health and wellbeing of the nation. However, the threats posed to sport, including through the recommendations of the Barclay review of business rates, ensure an even greater need for the SSA. Without the SSA, the voice of voluntary sector sport in Scotland would, in my...

NHS Winter Crisis (10 Jan 2018)

Huw Merriman: ...for their care. We have seen huge demand from the elderly. I am still greatly concerned that the social care system is set up on a local authority basis.
