    The quasi-autonomous Scottish Regional Committee was intended to provide a
    Scottish dimension to manpower policies in conjunction with a devolved Scottish
    Assembly. The Assembly never appeared, but the Scottish Committee (SC) was set up and has remained like an odd piece of flotsam above the highwater mark of nationalism. It is one of the surviving organisations from the period of
    corporatism in the 1970s. Does it perform a useful function? Can a case be made out for its continued existence?
