To ask the Scottish Government whether it will provide an update on the Ayrshire Growth Deal.
Answered by: Michael Matheson 19 September 2018
I met with Ayrshire Growth Deal partners last month to reiterate the Scottish Government’s commitment to agreeing a deal, with the aim of supporting investments that will boost inclusive economic growth.
I recognise the hard work that partners have put into developing deal proposals. My officials continue to engage with Ayrshire and UK Government colleagues to maintain collective pace and focus on reaching a heads of terms agreement as soon as possible.
