S5W-08035: Jackie Baillie (Dumbarton)

Scottish Labour

Date lodged: 14 March 2017

To ask the Scottish Government whether state aid rules prohibit or restrict the public funding of Glasgow Prestwick Airport.

Answered by: Keith Brown 21 March 2017

Yes. This is why our investment in the airport is on a commercial basis with the loan funding attracting a market rate of interest in line with state aid rules. We expect all loan funding will be repaid, plus interest.
