In Edinburgh, the Resolution Foundation launched a major new report into the Scottish labour market and living standards at which Roseanna Cunningham MSP delivered a key note speech. The report focuses on how Scotland weathered the recession and the shape of its recovery, highlighting both the similarities and differences to the experience of other nations and regions of the UK.

As well as a speech by Roseanna Cunningham MSP, Cabinet Secretary for Fair Work, Skills and Training, there were quick-fire responses from an expert panel including Sandy Begbie, Chief People Officer at Standard Life and David Bell, Professor of Economics at the University of Stirling. The event was chaired by Magnus Gardham, political editor of The Herald, and there was also an audience Q&A.
