To ask the Scottish Government whether it will outline how the First Minister's commitment to "invest up to £500 million to anchor a new offshore wind supply chain" will be delivered in conjunction with the £500 million Just Transition Fund.


It is important that we take the time to work closely with industry, with investors and with our partners across the public and private sectors to ensure that we get our approach to this right. This process is already well-underway and will update the market once it has been completed.

Delivery of the £500 million Just Transition Fund remains ongoing with £75 million allocated to date, supporting projects and communities across the North East and Moray to create jobs, support innovation, and secure the highly skilled workforce of the future.
