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.
