Ian said today that Edinburgh is the ideal place for the location of the Green Investment Bank following a letter to him from the Secretary of State for Business, Innovation and Skills outlining the criteria that is to be used to decide.
Ian said: “It is clear that Edinburgh is the obvious choice for the Green Investment Bank. I have been pressing for this for many months and the criteria that the Secretary of State will use to chose the location simple screams Edinburgh.”
“We have the specialist and skilled staff to run the organisation, it would be at the heart of the financial services sector in Edinburgh, and the location would give fantastic value for money with an abundance of trained staff. There is also all the wonderful work that is going on in Edinburgh at local companies and the Universities to develop the technology. I can’t think of a better location.”
