To ask the Scottish Government when the support it plans to give island authorities wishing to establish single authority models of delivering local services will become available.
Answered by: Shona Robison 5 October 2017
The Scottish Government understands the Islands Councils will be working with partners and stakeholders to develop detailed proposals for single public authority models of delivering local services. We will provide assistance on specific issues where it is agreed that Scottish Government input would be helpful.
