To ask the Scottish Government how it helps schools prevent pest infestations.

Answered by: John Swinney 21 March 2018

The health, safety and wellbeing of school pupils in Scotland is of paramount importance to the Scottish Government and it is the statutory responsibility of all local authorities to ensure they are providing safe and clean environments for our young people.

Our £1.8 billion Scotland’s Schools for the Future programme will see the construction or refurbishment of 117 schools and will benefit over 60,000 pupils by March 2020. At least one new school project is being delivered in every local authority area in Scotland.
