S5W-19678: Ross Greer (West Scotland)

Scottish Green Party

Date lodged: 31 October 2018

To ask the Scottish Government, further to the answer to question S5W-19092 by Ivan McKee on 27 September 2018, what proportion of (a) Scottish Enterprise and (b) Highlands and Islands Enterprise funding to business the human rights due diligence requirements apply to.

Answered by: Ivan McKee 14 November 2018

The human rights due diligence guidance on investments relates predominantly to foreign direct investment. The amount of funding spent on attracting and securing such investment is demand-driven and varies year on year. Information on the proportion of funding allocated to support investment decisions by the enterprise agencies is not held centrally by the Scottish Government.
