Malcolm expresses concern about Chambers reference books leaving Edinburgh
Question to the First Minister on Chambers leaving Scotland Malcolm Chisholm (Edinburgh North and Leith) (Lab):
Does the First Minister share my concern at plans by the international company that produces Chambers reference books to close its Scottish office in my constituency with the loss of all jobs? Will he do everything he can to support the staff of this most historic and iconic of Scottish publishers and to question the stated reasons for this unnecessary closure?

Alex Salmond, The First Minister:

Yes. I am concerned about the point raised by the constituency member and I will ensure that the Minister for Economy, Energy and Tourism and the Cabinet Secretary for Finance and Sustainable Growth discuss it with him and the company concerned.
