To ask the Scottish Government, further to the recommendation in its publication, Enterprise and Skills Review: Report on Phase 1, which states that “it may be reasonable to seek certain attributions or contributions from companies seeking and receiving public sector [enterprise] support”, what attributes and contributions it is considering, and whether these include the company paying (a) its staff at least the living wage and (b) a fair level of tax.

Answered by: Keith Brown 20 December 2016

These issues will be considered as part of phase two of the review, and as part of this process we will consider how our aspirations for inclusive growth are best supported.
