Date lodged: 17 January 2017
To ask the Scottish Government, further to the comments by the Cabinet Secretary for Rural Economy and Connectivity on 12 January 2017 (Official Report, c. 2 and 4) that "Highlands and Islands Enterprise (HIE) has played a significant role in supporting the achievement of our commitment to provide broadband to 95 per cent of premises by the end of 2017" and that providing broadband across Scotland "is not a case of one size—or one technology—fits all", whether it has assessed how the planned centralisation of HIE will impact both this and the 2021 commitments.
