S5W-11285: Miles Briggs (Lothian)

Scottish Conservative and Unionist Party

Date lodged: 13 September 2017

To ask the Scottish Government how many members of the Edinburgh Tram Inquiry team are, or have been, paid at a daily rate.

Answered by: Humza Yousaf 28 September 2017

The Edinburgh Tram Inquiry is a statutory Inquiry, and as such, it is independent of Scottish Government. Therefore, how and when Inquiry staff are paid is a matter for the Inquiry and not the Scottish Government. However, officials maintain an on-going engagement with the inquiry team to ensure appropriate financial control and monitoring arrangements are in place.
