PODCAST: Interview with Scottish Government minister Jamie Hepburn

Scottish Government minister for employability and training Jamie Hepburn spoke to CommonSpace after he kicked off at the 77th STUC Youth Conference in Clydebank

THE STUC Youth Committee held its annual conference in Clydebank at the weekend, where there was lots of discussion about better conditions for young workers. 

In his speech to the conference, Scottish Government minister Jamie Hepburn discussed what was on the agenda for the youth workers conference, but also he discussed fair work for young people. 

CommonSpace reporter David Thomson managed to speak to Hepburn about the issues raised in his speech, and whether EU nationals should be allowed to stay in Scotland once the Brexit deal has been negotiated.

Is there an easy way to get these podcasts onto an old fashioned iPod? (Other than faffing about downloading it and adding it to iTunes manually that is.)
