Answered by: John Swinney 17 January 2019
Officials will continue to regularly meet representatives of the MoD to discuss a wide range of matters, including education matters, as part of our commitment to working in partnership with the MoD to improve outcomes for the people of Scotland. The UK-wide Education Support Fund has been discussed at several of the Scottish Service Children Strategy Group quarterly meetings chaired by the Scottish Government.
