Industrial and Power Association seeks Scottish energy industry views on more powers for Scottish Parliament

IPA logo2There is a willingness, shared by all five of Scotland’s main political parties, to strengthen the powers of the Scottish Parliament within the UK. 

Lord Smith of Kelvin’s job is to create a process through which all can come together, work together and agree the detail of what those powers should be.

So the Industrial and Power Association will submit a paper on behalf of its members. 

  • What are your thoughts on The Scottish Government belief that the Scottish Parliament should have greater responsibility for all energy policy and regulation?
  • Will more personal tax and possible corporation tax devolvement impact your business?

If you have any comments on any of these do send them to IPA  by 29 October. Or if you wish to send your own comments the deadline is 31 October. Further details are available here

Meanwhile, the IPA is holding a dinner event in Glasgow on 19 November with Bert Dunwoody Marketing Manager, Howden Global, as guest speaker.

Hector Grant, Chief Executive, Industrial and Power Association, said: “Although this event is very much an informal social evening and will be an opportunity to meet other IPA members and guests it will be held at a very interesting time for the industry.

“As such we will take the opportunity to gather further opinion about what the energy industry would like to see devolved to the Scottish Government and relay these to members of The Smith Commission.”

The IPA has meanwhile welcomed the following new members:

  • Retronix Oil and Gas
  • Siemens plc
  • Aggreko plc
  • HBJ Gateley solicitors
  • Island GIS

The IPA is also holding a dinner event in Glasgow on 19 November with Bert Dunwoody Marketing Manager of Howden Global as guest speaker.
