To ask the Scottish Government what action it will take in response to the Audit Scotland report, Supporting Scotland’s economic growth: The role of the Scottish Government and its economic development agencies.

Answered by: Keith Brown 3 November 2016

We welcomed the Audit Scotland report Supporting Scotland’s Economic Growth: The role of the Scottish Government and its Economic Development Agencies’, which formed part of the evidence base considered during phase 1 of the Enterprise and Skills review.

The Enterprise and Skills Review Phase 1 Report, published on 25 October encapsulates actions against the findings and recommendations raised in the Audit Scotland report. In addition, Phase 2 will take forward these issues over the course of its deliberations.
