Orkney Islands Council and local MSP, Mr Jim Wallace QC, have made a number of representations to the Executive on matters connected with the local government funding settlement. Representations may also have been received from others from time to time. A full list of all such representations, and by whom they were made, is not maintained centrally.

Mr Wallace and, from the Council, Councillor Stephen Hagan, Councillor Keith Johnson and Mr Harry Garland, the Director of Community Social Services, have made several recent representations about specific aspects of the settlement, in particular care services for the elderly.

There have also been two recent meetings with representatives from the council and Mr Wallace to discuss a range of issues, including: elements of the settlement and the delivery of services for the elderly. The first of these meetings took place on 20 December 2006 with the Deputy Minister for Health and Community Care and then there was a subsequent meeting with the Deputy Minister for Finance, Public Service Reform and Parliamentary Business on the 2 February 2007.
