Scottish Labour

Date lodged: 28 November 2018

To ask the Scottish Government, further to the answers to questions S5W-19085 and S5W-19086 by Jamie Hepburn on 24 October and 13 November 2018 respectively, in light of the report, Scotland’s Devolved Employment Services, not setting out this data, whether it will provide the information that was requested and confirm how (a) many performance-related fees have been paid to Fair Start Scotland providers based on the (i) 13- and (ii) 26-week employment milestones, and what the value of these fees is, and (b) much has been paid in service fees to Fair Start Scotland.

Answered by: Jamie Hepburn 11 December 2018

I refer to the answer to S5W-19086. The Scottish Government will publish national level spend detail on Fair Start Scotland in due course. The Scottish Fiscal Commission will publish their next forecasts of Fair Start Scotland expenditure on 12 December to accompany the Scottish Budget.
