Public Bill Committee: Financial Services and Markets Bill: Examination of Witness (19 Oct 2022)

...we can expect a fall in investment, and we are just starting to see that trickle through. It is therefore a question of how the UK holds up against other countries.

It comes back to maintaining that competitiveness....

Graeme Dey: ...from mistakes. More recently, in the course of the committee’s inquiry into the impact of college regionalisation, I had a wry smile at hearing from college representatives about the benefits of mergers and regionalisation.

Scottish Parliament: Skills Delivery Landscape (22 Sep 2022)

Daniel Johnson: ...scope of the review. Although the minister applauds the performance of SDS and the SFC, there is certainly an implication that their scope and footprint will be looked at.
