Click to contact the Scottish Policy Unit (0141 221 0775) The Federation of Small Businesses' (FSB) Scottish Policy development is, like the rest of the organisation, member-led. The Scottish Policy Unit, an FSB committee, meets on a monthly basis to discuss issues of significance to the Scottish small business community, although with a special focus on areas controlled by the Scottish Parliament. FSB Public Affairs and Policy staff attend these meetings and update the members on external developments and their own activities. The committee contains two representatives from each of the four FSB regions in Scotland. These representatives gather member experiences and evidence from their regional meetings.
