S5W-15814: Johann Lamont (Glasgow)

Scottish Labour

Date lodged: 5 April 2018

To ask the Scottish Government, further to the answer to question S5O-01927 by Maree Todd on 22 March 2018 (Official Report, c.1), whether it considers that the decision by Glasgow City Council to increase charges for childcare is in line with its comment in the Programme for Government that "improving the education and life chances of children and young people is the defining mission of this Government", and what the reasons are for its position on this matter.

Answered by: Maree Todd 3 May 2018

As set out in my previous answers on this issue, local policy decisions are a matter for the local authority.
