S5O-01663: Tom Mason (North East Scotland)

Scottish Conservative and Unionist Party

Date lodged: 20 December 2017

To ask the Scottish Government, in light of the commitment in last year's Budget to deliver a Scottish Screen Unit in 2017, and a similar commitment in its recent Draft Budget, what assurances it can provide that it will be delivered in 2018.

Answered by: Fiona Hyslop 10 January 2018

Creative Scotland has started implementation of the Screen Unit Blueprint, which I approved and was published on
11 December. The plan to deliver a Screen Unit within Creative Scotland was developed in partnership with our enterprise and skills agencies. The Scottish Government has shown its commitment to the screen sector by doubling investment in development, production and growth next financial year.
