Hello from Holly-rood, where this week the Christmas trees have gone up and there's tinsel in the air. We've still got a couple of meetings before recess, though, and tomorrow we'll be looking at fuel poverty as part of our pre-budget scrutiny. We'll be hearing from
- Norman Kerr, Director, Energy Action Scotland;
- Di Alexander, Chair, Scottish Rural Poverty Taskforce;
- Elizabeth Leighton, Policy advisor and secretariat, Existing Homes Alliance Scotland; and
- Professor David Sigsworth, Former Chair of the Scottish Fuel Poverty Strategic Working Group.
Tune in from 10am tomorrow to watch us live.
The deadline for submissions to our pre-budget scrutiny is this Wednesday, so if you were planning to send something in, don't delay. The Budget itself will be announced on Thursday, with a Ministerial Statement at 2.30pm followed by a debate: again, you can watch live online.
