To ask the Scottish Government what calculation it has made of the economic effects on arms-length external organisations if rates relief is removed.
Answered by: Derek Mackay 31 October 2017
On 12 September, I confirmed that 22 of the 30 Barclay recommendations were accepted and six required further consideration and engagement before the Scottish Government confirms its position, including consideration of the wider impacts. Our position, informed by that engagement, will be confirmed by the end of this year.
