S5W-14979: Jackie Baillie (Dumbarton)

Scottish Labour

Date lodged: 1 March 2018

To ask the Scottish Government, since SME Holding Fund Strategic Interventions was introduced, (a) how many and (b) what value of applications for support have been made to DSL Business Finance Limited in each year, and, of these, how many were (i) successful and (ii) unsuccessful and what the total value was of both, and whether it will provide details of each business and their location.

Answered by: Keith Brown 7 March 2018

We are planning to publish a performance report on the SME Holding Fund next month. I refer the member to the answer to question S5W-14261 on 21 February 2018. All answers to written parliamentary questions are available on the Parliament’s website, the search facility for which can be found at

Some of the information requested will be contained within that report, it will not however include information on unsuccessful applications (this information is not collected by Scottish Government) or provide information on businesses and their location (due to the commercially sensitive nature).
