Scottish Parliament: Fiscal Regime (Oil and Gas) (18 Feb 2015)

Fergus Ewing: I attended, as I always do, the UK Government PILOT meeting on 13 January. It was chaired by Matt Hancock, who is the current UK minister with responsibility for oil and gas. At that meeting, I summarised the Scottish Government proposals that were set out in Parliament on 8 January. I commend them to the UK Government and to our colleagues who represent the Conservative and Liberal Democrat...

Scottish Parliament: Opencast Mining (18 Feb 2015)

Fergus Ewing: ...have been working closely with Ian Cockburn of Hargreaves, the author of the proposals, who I understand has had constructive discussions with HM Treasury, and I have had telephone discussions with Matt Hancock and David Mundell.

I think that most people in Scotland agree with us.

Employment: Young People — Motion to Take Note (4 Jul 2013)

Lord Cormack: ..., pewter, silver and woodwork—a whole range of things—many of them one-man or one-woman bands, and many unable to afford to take on apprentices. I took a group from that association to see Mr Matt Hancock, the Minister with particular responsibility, a few weeks ago. We had a warm and receptive hearing, and I hope that that will lead to things. The Government should be helping those...
