Scottish Green Party

Date lodged: 1 March 2017

To ask the Scottish Government for what reason the modelling in its publication, Draft Climate Change Plan - the draft Third Report on Policies and Proposals 2017-2032, assumes that funding for active travel is to be frozen at 2016-17 values until 2021.

The Scottish Government has put in place record investment in walking and cycling, with over £175 million invested since the 2011 spending review. As noted in the Programme for Government, we will maintain investment at record levels for the life of this parliament. We are committed to maintain record levels of spending on active travel. Also committed to seek additional funding where possible in the plan.
