Date lodged: 26 January 2017

To ask the Scottish Government whether it will publish correspondence between ministers and the Scottish Funding Council between 1 January 2011 and 31 December 2016, which related to the purpose of the £50 million in additional funding that the Scottish Government clawed back in 2015-16.

Answered by: John Swinney 7 February 2017

The Scottish Government did not correspond on the purpose of the £50m given it had already made clear that this sum was to be recovered from the Scottish Funding Council’s budget.
