Meeting date: Wednesday, November 22, 2023



The Convener (Claire Baker)

Good morning, and welcome to the 29th meeting in 2023 of the Economy and Fair Work Committee. Our first item of business is a declaration of interests. I welcome Jackie Dunbar to the committee in her capacity as a newly appointed committee substitute and invite her to declare any relevant interests.

Thank you, convener. To the best of my knowledge, I have no interests to declare.

Thank you.

Murdo Fraser has an interest to declare in relation to this morning’s meeting.

My declaration relates to item 4 on the agenda. As a member of the cross-party group on building bridges with Israel, I visited Israel and the occupied Palestinian territories in 2018. The cost of that was met by the embassy of Israel in the United Kingdom.

Maggie Chapman also has an interest to declare.

Thanks very much, convener. My declaration relates to item 6 on our agenda. As I said at last week’s meeting, I am a board member of North East Scotland Climate Action Network hub, and I am a delegate to the Aberdeen Trades Union Council.
