The project is likely to have originated at Insider Publications,

publisher of Scottish Business Insider magazine, which was recently

acquired by the Daily Record.



The 32-page pink tabloid will have a cover price of between 70p and

pounds 1.



Editorial content in the dummy covers both the Scottish business scene

and the UK as a whole, with City and national news assessed from a

Scottish perspective.



Much of the advertising is expected to be generated from London which

will require the setting up of a London sales office.



Insider Publications’ managing director, Alastair Balfour, declined to

comment and referred enquiries to Daily Record managing director Mark

Hollinshead.
