To ask the Scottish Government how many interpreters were employed or contracted through its Interpreting, Translation and Transcription Framework Agreement in each year since 2010.
Answered by: Derek Mackay 7 March 2017
The framework is currently used by a number of public bodies, and the specific number of interpreters employed or contracted is not held centrally. Central data focusses on the number of assignments, some of which may deploy multiple interpreters.
