Culture, Tourism, Europe and External Affairs Committee 21 November 2019 [Draft] : 21 November 2019


Fiona Hyslop

It will be after the general election. However, as you know, that puts us into the week before Christmas. We must think about that timing in relation to everythin...



Culture, Tourism, Europe and External Affairs Committee 21 November 2019 [Draft] : 21 November 2019


Fiona Hyslop

I am not sure what your report is going to say, as you will have to discuss what you want to put in it. I understand that I am the last witness in the inquiry, so I do not know what you will...



Culture, Tourism, Europe and External Affairs Committee 21 November 2019 [Draft] : 21 November 2019


Fiona Hyslop

I am not responsible for the timing or the subject choices of the committee but, as I said at the outset, we want to take on board what you say so that it can inform our future policy making...



Culture, Tourism, Europe and External Affairs Committee 21 November 2019 [Draft] : 21 November 2019

Culture, Tourism, Europe and External Affairs Committee 21 November 2019 [Draft] : 21 November 2019


Fiona Hyslop

I think that either my office or Creative Scotland has written to the committee to give you that information. In any case, I will ensure that Creative Scotland sh...



Culture, Tourism, Europe and External Affairs Committee 21 November 2019 [Draft] : 21 November 2019


Fiona Hyslop

Obviously, we have discussed the terms of the review and what it is intended to achieve. The organisation is also going through a management review. <...



Culture, Tourism, Europe and External Affairs Committee 21 November 2019 [Draft] : 21 November 2019


Fiona Hyslop

That issue is a frustration. Last week, the Scottish Government announced what it wants to see in relation to EU structural funds—I am not sure whether you took e...



Culture, Tourism, Europe and External Affairs Committee 21 November 2019 [Draft] : 21 November 2019


Fiona Hyslop

I caution that the culture strategy will not involve a major funding announcement, as people might expect given the current constraints on budgets. However, it wi...
