Date lodged: 13 April 2017

To ask the Scottish Government, what its position is on whether the 2017-18 guidance issued to the Scottish Funding Council (SFC) by the Minister for Further Education, Higher Education and Science on 30 March 2017 reflects a narrowing of the focus of the SFC to prioritise on issues within the remit of the new strategic board following phase one of the Skills and Enterprise review.

Answered by: Shirley-Anne Somerville 11 May 2017
