Procurement Reform Bill Opportunity for Jobs & Increased Sustainability

Banffshire & Buchan Coast MSP Stewart Stevenson has welcomed the Procurement Reform Bill which was debated in the Scottish Parliament yesterday (Thursday). The SNP MSP says it could bring more opportunities for small businesses in the North-east and improve the sustainability of products on sale.

Mr Stevenson said:

“I am very encouraged that the Bill’s provisions are likely to lead to improved opportunities for employment, particularly for young people, through the embedding of apprenticeship requirements. I also welcome the need to promote innovation – we want people to be imaginative and to discover innovative new ways of doing things, for the benefit of all those around them.

“As I represent the biggest fishing-dependent constituency, the concept of sustainability is very important to me. I look forward to seeing the bill go through Parliament and hope that it gives more opportunities to small local businesses, and improves the sustainability of the products that we buy.”
