S5W-17017: Iain Gray (East Lothian)

Scottish Labour

Date lodged: 4 June 2018

To ask the Scottish Government what funding it has given to Taylor Wimpey in the last two years (a) through its Help to Buy scheme and (b) for any other reason.

Answered by: Kevin Stewart 13 June 2018

There has been no other known Scottish Government funding to Taylor Wimpey in the past two years.

Scottish Government funding for the Help to Buy (Scotland) scheme is not given directly to builders. The funding provides an equity stake for purchasers who cannot afford to buy without assistance from the scheme.
