S5O-00467: Graham Simpson (Central Scotland)

Scottish Conservative and Unionist Party

Date lodged: 7 December 2016

To ask the Scottish Government how it plans to assist local authorities in overcoming forecasted funding gaps.

Answered by: Derek Mackay 14 December 2016

The Scottish Government has treated local government very fairly despite the cuts to the Scottish Budget from the UK Government.

I will set out details of the 2017-18 local government finance settlement tomorrow as part of my announcement on the Scottish Government's 2017-18 Draft Budget.
