- Asked by: Edward Mountain, MSP for Highlands and Islands, Scottish Conservative and Unionist Party
- Date lodged: 5 December 2022
Current status: Answered by Michael Matheson on 16 December 2022
To ask the Scottish Government, further to the answer to question S6W-10644 by Michael Matheson on 26 September 2022, whether it will provide an update on its consideration of whether the gross revenue from the option fees raised via the ScotWind leasing process should fall within the scope of the existing 9% agreement with Crown Estate Scotland, and, if it is the case that this consideration is ongoing, what the timetable is for a conclusion to be reached.
We continue to engage with Crown Estate Scotland on this matter and consideration is ongoing. Timescales are dependent on the 2023-24 Budget process, which will not conclude until the 2023-24 Budget Bill is passed.
