To ask the Scottish Government further to the comments in the publication, Enterprise and Skills Review: Report on Phase 1, how many staff the new Scotland-wide statutory board that is expected to deliver international activities and support will have; what the cost will be, and whether the staff will be new employees or assigned from its agencies.

Detailed operational planning for the new Scotland-wide statutory board has yet to be taken forward. This work will take place as part of phase 2 of the review. We plan to consult with the current boards to take this forward.
