"The Future of Europe: Reform or Decline", which is a significant new book by a gentleman called Alberto Alesina, highlights and debates the need to benchmark and improve the speed and cost effectiveness of legal services. Does the minister agree that it would make sense to bring together the Faculty of Advocates, the Law Society of Scotland, Scottish Enterprise and business organisations to address the speed and cost effectiveness of legal services and to make Scotland a more compelling place in which to invest and in which to source legal services?
