To ask the Scottish Government how much the Lanarkshire Regional Colleges Board has cost to run and operate in each financial year since it was established, and whether these costs are top-sliced from the funding allocation to the two Lanarkshire colleges.
Answered by: Shirley-Anne Somerville 16 November 2016
There is no organisation named ‘Lanarkshire Regional Colleges Board’. One of the two colleges in the Lanarkshire region, New College Lanarkshire, was designated both a regional college and a regional strategic body on 1 October 2014. On the same date the other college in the region, South Lanarkshire College, was assigned to it.
