To ask the Scottish Government what the status is of the Glasgow City Deal Project.
Answered by: Keith Brown 9 June 2016
The Scottish Government remains absolutely committed to working with all our cities to unlock investment and is a partner in the Glasgow City Region City Deal Project, contributing £500 million over 20 years to the Infrastructure Investment Fund. The Glasgow City Region Cabinet, comprising the eight Glasgow Clyde Valley local authorities, is responsible for project selection and delivery and has already approved a number of project business cases. As our largest city, Glasgow forms a key part of Scotland's economy and we are fully committed to making this deal a success.
