Media briefing - Tuesday 19 November 2013

Post-Cabinet Media Briefing by the First Minister's Official Spokesperson (FMOS) & the First Minister's Special Adviser (FMSA)

FMSA welcomed journalists to the briefing and updated on today’s Cabinet. FMSA explained that the First Minister and Finance Secretary had not attended Cabinet due to the launch of the Economic Levers report in Dundee.

FMSA said that Minister for Youth Employment, Angela Constance, had updated Cabinet on the Bank of Scotland jobs report which shows good progress on the employment front, with employment at its highest for six years.

The FMOS advised that a calling note on the launch of the White Paper event will be issued later today.
