To ask the Scottish Government, further to the answer to question S5W-02020 by Humza Yousaf on 15 September 2016, how much it has provided to each local authority to retrofit their vehicles.
Answered by: Roseanna Cunningham 7 September 2016
The funding provided is shown in the following table. Funding is provided at 30% of the total cost and is only available for retrofitting equipment that has been independently tested and conforms to specified air pollutant emissions standards. Although funding remains available for this purpose, local authorities have prioritised other actions for improving local air quality in recent years, thus there have been no recent requests for funding.
