Date lodged: 29 September 2017
To ask the Scottish Government, further to the answer to question S5W-11280 by Derek Mackay on 26 September 2017, whether it is considering publishing a response to the UK Government and EU position papers on the financial settlement in the context of withdrawal from the EU, and when it expects to have reached a decision regarding whether or not to do so.
Answered by: Derek Mackay 24 October 2017
As noted in the answer to question S5W-11280, the Scottish Government will consider whether to respond to UK Government and EU position papers on an individual basis following consideration of their content.
The UK Government has yet to publish a position paper on the financial settlement in the context of withdrawal from the EU. The Scottish Government will further consider the EU position paper once the UK Government has made its own position clear.
