Welcome for recommendation that the Highlands and Islands has its own Economic Development Agency
01 March 2011
Highlands and Islands Labour MSP Peter Peacock has welcomed a report by his fellow MSPS recommending that the region continues to have its own economic development agency.
A report published by the cross-party economic committee said that while there could be efficiencies made from replacing Highlands an Islands Enterprise and Scottish Enterprise with a single agency, the issues facing the Highlands and Islands were substantial enough to merit a dedicated regional agency.
Mr Peacock said: "I welcome the recommendation by the committee.
"It is clearly the right decision."
