To ask the Scottish Government what action it is taking to ensure that all colleges have sufficient funds to honour the pay deal that was agreed by Colleges Scotland and the EIS.

Answered by: Shirley-Anne Somerville 29 June 2017

In his letter of 12 June 2017, the CEO of the Scottish Funding Council advised Colleges Scotland that additional funding made available in 2017-18 was sufficient to meet the costs of the lecturers' pay settlement alone for 2017-18.

The letter was copied to all college Principals and made available to the EIS.
