Economic Growth

Volume 508: debated on Wednesday 7 April 2010

14. To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland what recent discussions he has had with the Chancellor of the Exchequer on measures to increase the rate of growth of the Scottish economy. (325100)

I have had numerous discussions with the Chancellor of the Exchequer on a range of issues affecting Scotland, most especially around ensuring we do everything possible to help Scotland through the most severe global downturn in 60 years. The Scottish economy has benefited from the UK Government's fiscal stimulus, and will benefit from a range of measures designed to drive the economy to a sustained recovery.
