first_imgSSE took part in Scotland’s largest offshore wind and supply chain conference organised by Scottish Renewables.The conference in Aberdeen saw more than 800 people come together to discuss the future of Scotland’s offshore wind industry and the opportunities it presents for businesses.Sandy Biggar, SSE’s Director of Procurement and Logistics, told delegates that all businesses have an important role to play in developing Scotland’s economy and helping it grow.He told delegates: “Clearly there are some industries where there is a natural Scottish strength – energy, for example – and the contributions it makes to Scottish prosperity is already great.“But we all know there is room for improvement – and in particular, the development of a more competitive and successful supply chain.”Formed in May 2009, the Scottish Energy Advisory Board (SEAB) meets at least twice a year and brings industry experts, academics, public sector bodies and consumer representatives to work collectively to deliver Scotland’s energy potential and secure Scotland’s energy future.It is jointly chaired by the First Minister, Nicola Sturgeon and Professor Jim McDonald, Principal of the University of Strathclyde.Sandy added: “This is a global industry and Scotland benefits from the flows in and out of goods and services. But we should use that international exposure to drive up standards, to innovate and to encourage indigenous success.“That’s the job of SEAB – to help create the conditions under which that can happen.”SSE has already studied its economic impact on the Scottish economy, contributing £3.9bn over the past three years.Image: sselast_img read more

Help for a good cause

first_imgPaul Johnson, Ladies Christian Home, Gardens The Ladies Christian Home was born out of the concern for the welfare of elderly women in the Cape Town area.This need still exists. There is a critical shortage of suitable accommodation for elderly women at a reasonable cost so a home such as this fulfils a real need in the community, even some 139 years after its establishment.This applies particularly to women who are single or widowed and have no one to provide them with this level of care.We cater for women of all races, faiths and language groups. We believe that a lack of finances must not exclude anyone from being admitted to the Ladies Christian Home. We are largely dependent on funds from the public for our needs, which include, feeding, accommodation and medical care. It is for this reason that we ask for your help. We are registered as a public benefit organisation (PBO) in terms of Section 18A of the Income Tax Act (Act 58 of 1962). Contributions are tax deductable up to 10% of an individual or company’s taxable income.If you would like to help, send an email to or call 021 465 3117.last_img read more

first_imgPeers have warned the government to stop relying on a 1945 memorandum to give legal justification for acting in ways that pre-empt parliament. In a report critical of the current government’s behaviour, the House of Lords Constitution Committee says the so-called ‘Ram doctrine’ is ‘misleading and inaccurate, and should no longer be used’. The doctrine holds that ministers enjoy the common law right to ‘exercise any powers which the Crown has power to exercise’, except where prevented by statute. However the committee’s report, The pre-emption of Parliament, says the 1945 memorandum on which the doctrine is based is merely a legal opinion which does not reflect the law today. It notes examples of recent government decisions that pre-empt parliament. The government began to reorganise NHS primary care trusts while the enabling legislation, the Health and Social Care Bill, was going through the House of Lords. Likewise, reorganisation work began on the Youth Justice Board and the Office of the Chief Coroner before the Public Bodies Act 2011 was enacted. While ‘the interests of efficient and cost-effective public administration’ may require a government to carry out work in anticipation of a bill becoming law, the report warns that ministers must always state clearly the power under which they consider themselves authorised to act. It also calls on the government to do more to inform parliament of pre-emptive activities.last_img read more
