Scottish education minister Brian Wilson said:

'This initiative draws on the 17 years experience that the

Scottish Community Education Council have in developing the Young

Scot school leaver initiative. Young people have lot of difficult

decisions to make at an early stage and Young Scot can help them to

make an informed choice.

'I am also pleased that Young Scot and Scotland Against Drugs have come together to launch this unique educational package. It will

clearly provide young people with a great deal of information, as well

as special deals at over 2,200 outlets across Scotland. This in itself

demonstrates how education and business can work together to support

young people.'
