To ask the Scottish Government what meetings it has had with the UK Government regarding the negotiations for a universal service obligation for broadband suppliers.

Answered by: Fergus Ewing 30 September 2016

The Scottish Government has written to the UK Government, urging them to establish a Working Group to oversee the design of the proposed Universal Service Obligation (USO) for broadband in Scotland. I recently met with Sharon White, Chief Executive of Ofcom, at which the broadband USO was discussed.
