It is our favourite time of year again, Co-operatives Fortnight!

It is a chance to show people what co-operation is and why it is an altogether better way of doing business. As Convenor of the Cross Party Group on Co-operatives in the Scottish Parliament I submitted a motion to celebrate the co-ops across the UK that are doing just this; changing lives, changing communities and creating a better, more equal future.

We owe it to future generations 

The Scottish people overwhelmingly want to see a country that works together to deliver a more sustainable future. I believe that this bill will do just that, as well as providing an opportunity to create a fairer, more balanced country.
