Commons honour for vaccine specialist
STIRLING based Aqualife Services has been selected to appear in the latest Parliamentary Review, a fixture in the political calendar.
The main aim of the Review is to showcase best practice as a learning tool to the public and private sector, and this edition is aimed at the agriculture sector, with tens of thousands of copies sent out to leading policy makers.
Aqualife, a world leading fish care specialist, features alongside an introduction from the Chancellor, Philip Hammond, and a small number of organisations, including salmon farmer Loch Duart.
The review also includes a look back at the year in Westminster, with the political commentary written by Mark D’Arcy, the BBC’s parliamentary correspondent.
Aqualife managing director Ronnie Soutar said: ‘It was a privilege to be selected to appear in this year’s Parliamentary Review. I’m very pleased to see Aqualife’s position as leaders and innovators in our sector recognised – it’s a real tribute to the hard work and dedication of everyone in the company.’
The director of the Parliamentary Review, Daniel Yossman, said: ‘It’s been an utter privilege to work with a range of organisations from across the country in this year’s Review. Without their input, our aims of spreading expert knowledge and raising standards simply would not be achievable.
‘They’ll be a hard act to follow and next year’s organisations will have to be on the top of their game to meet the challenge.’
The Review was set up by MP David Curry in 2010 and he remains its editor. He said: ‘Each of the representatives brings something very different to the table, while at the same time capitalising on the collective wisdom of their industry.
‘There may be choppy waters ahead but organisations across the country would be well advised to keep an eye on the representatives in this year’s Review when deciding how to set their sails.’
Philip Hammond said: ‘The message we take to the world is this: we are the same outward looking, globally minded, big thinking country we have always been – and we remain very firmly open for business.’
The Parliamentary Review’s publication was marked by gala events at the House of Commons in September.
