Date lodged: 11 December 2018
To ask the Scottish Government, further to the answer to question S5W-20238 by Fergus Ewing on 7 December 2018, whether it will provide the information that was requested regarding whether it or its agencies compiled an economic impact assessment regarding the funding associated with the production of feed for the (a) aquaculture industry and (b) Marine Harvest Feed Plant at Kyleakin and, if so, whether it will publish this.
Answered by: Fergus Ewing 8 January 2019
Further to my answer to S5W-20237 on 7 December 2018, I can confirm that due to the amount and purpose of the funding awarded, which was for staff training, Highlands and Islands Enterprise (HIE) were not required to undertake an economic impact assessment.
