With reference to PQs S5W-10143 and S5W-10144 (answered on 27 July 2017), as Digital Scotland Superfast Broadband (DSSB) is a national programme which is being managed through two regional contracts – one covering the Highlands & Islands region, the other covering the rest of Scotland, it is not possible to provide delivery costs at a Parliamentary constituency level.
