Chamber and committees

Motion ref. S6M-02158

The UK Shared Prosperity Fund and the UK Government’s Levelling Up Agenda in Scotland

Submitted by: Richard Lochhead, Moray, Scottish National Party.
Date lodged: Tuesday, November 16, 2021

Supported by: Tom Arthur, Kate Forbes, Ben Macpherson, Ivan McKee, Lorna Slater
Current status: Taken in the Chamber on Thursday, November 18, 2021

That the Parliament agrees that the UK Government’s Spending Review plans for Levelling Up and the UK Shared Prosperity Fund not only fall well short of Scottish expectations and needs, but also infringe the sovereignty of the Scottish Parliament by circumventing the devolution settlement to deliver policy in areas that are clearly and firmly within the ambit of the Scottish Government, and calls on the UK Government to keep the promises made to Scotland, and to work in full partnership with the Scottish Government and local communities on the development of these programmes going forward to ensure they support job creation and a just transition, and meet the needs of Scotland’s citizens.
