S5W-10435: Liz Smith (Mid Scotland and Fife)

Scottish Conservative and Unionist Party

Date lodged: 21 July 2017

To ask the Scottish Government when finance will be forthcoming to support the building of new high schools in Dunfermline and West Fife.

Answered by: John Swinney 31 July 2017

The Scottish Government is currently providing significant investment of almost £58m to Fife Council through the Government's Schools for the Future programme. The three projects were identified by Fife Council as its priority schools for investment.

Our 2016 Manifesto indicated that the Government would bring forward new proposals to build on the success of the programme. Options are currently being developed and we intend to make an announcement later this year.
