MP’s pitch for green bank

Have your say

EDINBURGH South Labour MP Ian Murray insists the Capital is the ideal place for the new UK Green Investment Bank.

He said the criteria for choosing the location, announced earlier this week by Business Secretary Vince Cable, made Edinburgh the obvious choice.

He said: “We have the specialist and skilled staff to run the organisation, it would be at the heart of the financial services sector in Edinburgh and the location would give fantastic value for money with an abundance of trained staff.

“The criteria simply scream Edinburgh.”
