S5W-01615: Alex Rowley (Mid Scotland and Fife)

Scottish Labour

Date lodged: 22 July 2016

To ask the Scottish Government whether it will adopt an “infrastructure first” approach to development and, if so, whether it will fully-fund this.

Answered by: Kevin Stewart 16 August 2016

Infrastructure investment is central to the Scottish Government’s economic strategy and our vision for a prosperous, fair and well-connected Scotland. The Infrastructure Investment Plan 2015, published 16 December 2015, builds on the achievements delivered through our previous infrastructure plans and sets out a refreshed programme of long-term investment.

As set out in the Infrastructure Investment Plan 2015, the Scottish Government is fully committed to supporting and facilitating the delivery of infrastructure.
