Scottish Labour

Date lodged: 17 November 2016

To ask the Scottish Government when it will announce how much money employers will receive from the revenue raised by the Apprenticeship Levy.

Answered by: Jamie Hepburn 30 November 2016

Following our recent consultation we are finalising plans for responding to the introduction of the UK Apprenticeship Levy as part of the forthcoming Scottish Budget.
