Public Audit and Post-legislative Scrutiny Committee 04 October 2018 : 04 October 2018


Willie Coffey

Finally, do you accept that it is a bit of a double whammy that Ayrshire College is having to face in relation to the harmonisation that we have discussed and the PFI millstone that is still...



Public Audit and Post-legislative Scrutiny Committee 04 October 2018 : 04 October 2018


Willie Coffey

The payment that Ayrshire College has to make is about £2.2 million. West Lothian College was paying £2.7 million, so Ayrshire’s payment is less than West Lothian’s was. However, we managed ...



Public Audit and Post-legislative Scrutiny Committee 04 October 2018 : 04 October 2018


Willie Coffey

Willie Coffey

Willie Coffey

Are you sure about that? I have the post-merger evaluation document in front of me here and it quite clearly shows a table of those colleges that paid their own harmonisation money at the ti...



Public Audit and Post-legislative Scrutiny Committee 04 October 2018 : 04 October 2018


Willie Coffey (Kilmarnock and Irvine Valley) (SNP)

This is very much on the same theme but in relation to Ayrshire College. Dr Kemp, I wrote to you to ask you for information about the colleges that did receive funding support at the point o...



Finance and Constitution Committee 03 October 2018 [Draft] : 03 October 2018


Willie Coffey

I will ask about VAT. Last week Liz Truss said that it is a good time to be talking about the fiscal framework. I asked her whether it is a good time to talk about possible future assignment...



Finance and Constitution Committee 03 October 2018 [Draft] : 03 October 2018


Willie Coffey
