13. To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland what recent representations he has received on UK Government support for the Scottish manufacturing sector. (292290)

I have had discussions with a range of stakeholders about support for the Scottish manufacturing sector.

Most recently, in September, I attended the Scottish engineering executive committee dinner in Glasgow and the Scotland Office, jointly with the David Hume institute, hosted a seminar bringing together key leaders in Government, industry and the university sector to discuss the opportunities and challenges for the high-tech engineering sector in Scotland.
