Since his appointment as Secretary of State for Scotland, my right hon. Friend has made official visits, and made speeches to, some of the key Scottish companies and players in the commerce, industry and energy sectors. In keeping with his specific interests, my right hon. Friend has a meeting tomorrow with the “Big 6” (the Scottish Council for Development and Industry (SCDI), Confederation of British Industry (CBI), Scottish Financial Enterprise (SFE), Scottish Chambers of Commerce (SCC), Institute of Directors (IOD) and the Federation of Small Businesses (FSB)).
The Secretary of State and I have personally sent over 350 letters in this period.
