We now await the next Committee meeting which we hope will result in:
- their recommendation that the appropriate committee add finding an alternative to PPPs to their work schedule. We would expect this would be the Local Government and Housing Committee or the Finance and Public Administration Committee.
- or their request for further evidence from Jubilee Scotland to further inform their decision.
