21. Mr. Tynan

To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland what recent action she has taken to support business operations in Scotland.[10330]

Mr. Foulkes

Local action to support economic development and business operations is devolved. This Government have put in place macroeconomic policies that are delivering low inflation and sound public finances. As a consequence businesses in Scotland and the rest of the UK are better placed than ever before to cope with changes in the economic environment.
