To ask the Scottish Government whether it will provide a breakdown of the costs associated with each (a) policy and (b) proposal in its Draft Climate Change Plan.
Answered by: Roseanna Cunningham 15 February 2017
The draft Climate Change Plan sets out policies and proposals to meet our ambitious emission reduction targets out to 2032.
Policies are hard and fast action – things we are doing now, or will do soon. Where budget is needed now it has been allocated in the Government’s 2017-18 Budget. A proposal is considered to be a suggested course of action, the details of which might change as this course of action is explored and evidence is gathered. Any required funding – which could be significant - will be the subject of future Budget decisions.
