S5W-18150: Peter Chapman (North East Scotland)

Scottish Conservative and Unionist Party

Date lodged: 10 August 2018

To ask the Scottish Government, further to the answer to question S5W-17759 by Fergus Ewing on 6 August 2018, whether it will provide a breakdown by total spend of each Local Action Group (LAG).

Answered by: Fergus Ewing 20 August 2018

The national LEADER budget allocation totals £77.4m, as previously informed.

Of this, projects need to predict when the spend will be incurred, so the table below has the allocation per Local Action Group and Forecast which is the amount committed. It is normal in a Programme such as LEADER, for uptake at the start of the Programme to be slow, with local groups animating for projects, at that time. It is not until later in the Programme, that commitments are realised in to spend.
