§ Mr. Worthington
To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland what proposals he has to require local enterprise companies to publish and make available to the public a corporate plan or any other mechanism to increase the information available to the public about their activities.
§ Mr. Stewart
The local enterprise companies are required by their operating contracts with Scottish Enterprise and Highlands and Islands Enterprise to publish synopses of their operating and business plans—analogous to a corporate plan—in addition to their annual reports and accounts. They are further required to publicise and hold annually a meeting open to members of the public.
