The Members of Parliament’s  Scottish Affairs Select Committee visit will focus on aspects of the committee’s inquiry into the Crown Estate in Scotland, they are examining how the Crown Estate can best act in the public interest and its relationship with local communities which are directly affected by the decisions it makes.


They will be meeting with individuals and organisations on the ground, to hear first hand about their experiences. They will also be talking directly to people about the effectiveness of health and safety regulation in Scotland, particularly the specific concerns of local businesses in sectors such as fishing, renewable energy and oil and gas.


They will also be seeking information as to how employment and enterprise are being sustained in the present economic difficulties. In particular,  how helpful banks are being in supporting their customers.
