Question reference: S5W-03928

  • Asked by: Pauline McNeill, MSP for Glasgow, Scottish Labour
  • Date lodged: 21 October 2016
  • Current status: Answered by Kevin Stewart on 3 November 2016


To ask the Scottish Government whether all of the £50 million that has been made available to the Housing Infrastructure Fund for 2016-17 will be allocated for developments by the end of that financial year and, if not, whether the unallocated funds will be carried forward to 2017-18.


We will look to optimise spend up to £50m however this will be dependent on the state of readiness of projects to move forward to draw down this financial year. There are no carry forward arrangements for uncommitted funds but we will aim to manage any unallocated budgets effectively across housing or wider SG in line with normal programme management arrangements.
