Date lodged: 16 June 2017

To ask the Scottish Government which colleges do not 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.
