Question S3W-2373

To ask the Scottish Executive, further to the answer to question S3W-1713 by John Swinney on 23 July 2007, whether any analysis of the impact of the EC state aid rules was made in relation to the previous administration’s proposals to introduce business rate relief for investment in research and development, if so, what the conclusions were and whether it will publish any such analysis.

As stated in the answer to question S3W-1713 answered on 23 July 2007, the Scottish Executive routinely takes EC state aid rules into account in relation to any proposed rates relief schemes. However, any advice provided to Ministers in the previous administration in relation to analysis of its proposals is a matter for the previous administration.
