S5W-13463: Margaret Mitchell (Central Scotland)

Scottish Conservative and Unionist Party

Date lodged: 15 December 2017

To ask the Scottish Government whether funding for the Robert Burns World Federation has been reduced and, if so, for what reason.

Answered by: Fiona Hyslop 10 January 2018

The Robert Burns World Federation has previously been in receipt of funding from the Scottish Government to deliver specific, time-bound events and projects. The Robert Burns World Federation Ltd is a Company Limited by Guarantee (registered charity no SC029099) and questions relating to its other funding sources are not matters for the Scottish Government and should be directed to the Federation.
