Letter from John Swinney to Economy, Energy and Tourism Parliamentary Committee

John Swinney
October 2014

 

Thank you for your letter of August 12 to the Minister for Energy, Enterprise and Tourism, following the Committee’s discussion with Social Enterprise stakeholders on August 6. As Social Enterprise falls within my portfolio it is appropriate for me to respond.

 

I welcome the Committee’s interest in this important area and thank the Committee for facilitating this positive and constructive discussion with stakeholders. I note that stakeholders commended Scottish Government for its long term, consistent, strategic and coherent support for the Social Enterprise sector. I also note that reference was made to Scotland being regarded with envy internationally.
