On Scotland's Conscience
As the SNP government proposes to move the management of what is now Highlands and Islands Enterprise to the Scottish Central Belt, its direction to be amalgamated with that of other government quangos. Many people argue that this will badly damage the Highlands, and perhaps also the SNP.
In this book, edited and introduced by journalist and broadcaster Iain MacDonald, four eminent Highlanders express their concerns about, and present their arguments against, this policy. They are Professor James Hunter, ex-Chair of HIE; Brian Wilson, the Labour minister who appointed Professor Hunter to the position; Maggie Cunningham, ex-senior manager of BBC Scotland; and Michael Foxley, former Leader of Highland Council.
