Date lodged: 22 June 2018
To ask the Scottish Government what its position is on it nearing its capital borrowing limit of £3 billion.
Answered by: Derek Mackay 16 July 2018
The Scottish Government is committed to ensuring that revenue funded investment, including borrowing, is maintained at sustainable levels and as a result future revenue commitments will be kept within a maximum of 5% of available budget limits. When taking account of borrowing undertaken to date and borrowing anticipated in 2018-19, £1.5 billion of the £3 billion borrowing limit still remains available.
