The member is right to say that the Ernst & Young survey does not provide information on the total value. I understand his point, which he made last year too.

The survey refers to 119 different projects and more than 5,000 jobs. Murdo Fraser makes a fair point, and I have asked officials to look into how we can quantify, in a way that the Ernst & Young survey does not currently do, what the exact value is. I promise to get back to Mr Fraser with that information as soon as I have it.
