To ask the Scottish Government, further to the answer to the supplementary question by Jackie Dunbar, during First Minister's Questions on 3 June 2021, that it “will implement the recommendations of the Just Transition Commission”, whether it will list what it considers the recommendations to be, and how many have been implemented to date.
Current status: Answered by Richard Lochhead on 12 January 2022
We published our response to the recommendations of the Just Transition Commission’s final report on 7 September 2021 which is available here: https://www.gov.scot/publications/transition-fairer-greener-scotland/. This confirms our commitment to implement the recommendations of the Just Transition Commission in full, and includes our national just transition planning framework which is guiding our approach to delivery with partners across Scotland. A list of recommendations made by the Commission in their final report and the associated actions are set out on pages 11 - 28.
As referred to in the document, the Scottish Government will also provide an annual ministerial statement to Parliament. This will give a comprehensive update on actions taken across Government to support a just transition, including progress on the Commission’s recommendations.
