To ask the Scottish Government how much it has spent in each year since 1999 to support pupils at St Mary's Music School in Edinburgh as part of the aided places scheme under the Education (Scotland) Act 1980.


Answered by John Swinney (27/10/2016):

The Scottish Government does not hold all of the information requested. As set out in the Scottish Public Finance Manual, financial records should normally be retained for six years.

The Scottish Government holds the information requested from 2004 onwards. The following table sets out how much has been spent as part of the aided places scheme at St Mary’s Music School since 2004.
