Peering partner

23rd January 1998 at 00:00
The partnership theme transcends ministeries, Jotter is pleased to record. But Sam Galbraith, the children's minister, managed to notch up a mere eight references to partnership, plus a few co-operations, in his talk to a Children in Scotland conference last Friday.

This is nowhere near Brian Wilson's record of 32 (including 10 partners). Perhaps a bit more far-sightedness could have improved Galbraith's poor partnership effort: he left his glasses at home and had to borrow a pair from Bronwen Cohen, chief executive of Children in Scotland.

That's partnership for you.
