To ask the Scottish Government what recent discussions it has had with the UK Government regarding Dundee's 2023 European capital of culture bid.

Current status: Answered by Fiona Hyslop on 6 December 2017


I have spoken to Dundee City Council’s Leader to offer my full support and I have written to the UK Government and European Commission to understand the potential implications of this situation and to establish what action needs to be taken in order to address it. My officials are in regular contact with the UK Department of Digital, Culture, Media and Sport and Dundee’s bid team about this.
