As Mr Findlay knows, that matter is the subject of active dialogue between me and West Lothian Council. We are providing practical assistance, which comes at a cost, to support many of the individuals whom Hall’s of Broxburn has already made redundant. That financial contribution does not come through the local government finance settlement; it comes through other financial arrangements.
The Hall’s of Broxburn task force will also consider issues relating to the economic recovery within West Lothian. I have already signalled that the Government will make a financial contribution towards that.
