Date lodged: 14 August 2017
To ask the Scottish Government what discussions the Cabinet Secretary for Finance and Constitution had with the Leader of Glasgow City Council during his visit to the city chambers on 8 August 2017.
Answered by: Derek Mackay 25 August 2017
My meeting with Councillor Aitken on 8 August was our first opportunity to meet following her appointment as Leader of Glasgow City Council. We discussed and agreed that the Council's decision to rejoin COSLA would mean the start of a new, refreshed relationship between the Scottish Government and Glasgow City Council working together for the benefit of both the people of Glasgow and the wider Scottish population.
