Date lodged: 10 January 2022

Question

To ask the Scottish Government for what reason funding for Northern Isles Ferry Services dropped from £56.7 million to £51.3 million in the draft budget 2022-23.

Current status: Answered by Graeme Dey on 21 January 2022


Answer

The decrease in financial support required for the Northern Isles Ferry Services reflects a forecast recovery in fare box revenue, a reduction in the forecast fuel consumption costs and the exclusion of year one contract mobilisation costs that will not recur in 2022-23.
