John asks about Economic Impact of Clydesdale Bank sale

19 Feb 2016

John Mason: To ask the Scottish Government what analysis it has made of the potential economic impact on Scotland of the Clydesdale Bank being floated on the stock market.

Answered by John Swinney (11/02/2016):Clydesdale Bank has an established presence in Scotland, as a bank servicing personal and business customers and as a substantial employer. While no specific economic analysis has been undertaken, we would expect the Clydesdale Bank to continue to have a similar presence in Scotland following the flotation of shares on the stock market.
