S5W-02903: Rhoda Grant (Highlands and Islands)

Scottish Labour

Date lodged: 20 September 2016

To ask the Scottish Government what meetings it (a) has had and (b) plans with the UK Government regarding the impact of Brexit on the rollout of superfast broadband in Scotland.

Answered by: Fergus Ewing 4 October 2016

There have been no meetings with the UK Government specifically on the impact of Brexit on the rollout of superfast broadband in Scotland. However, Scottish Ministers are liaising with UK counterparts on the wider financial implications of Brexit. The impact of Brexit was also discussed at my meeting with Sharon White, Chief Executive of Ofcom, on 24 August 2016.
