To ask the Scottish Executive, further to the answer to the first supplementary to question S3O-11582 by John Swinney on 7 October 2010 ( Official Report , c. 29467), what progress has been made regarding its participation in the UN International Year of Cooperatives 2012.

As stated in my previous answer, the Scottish Government would look to Co-operative Development Scotland (CDS) to structure any participation in the UN International Year of Co-operatives 2012. I am advised that CDS aim to start the planning process in spring 2011, in conjunction with Co-operatives UK, and that Sarah Deas, Chief Executive of CDS, would welcome any input that the member or others may wish to make to that process.
