S5W-21401: Alex Cole-Hamilton (Edinburgh Western)

Scottish Liberal Democrats

Date lodged: 4 February 2019

To ask the Scottish Government what its position is on reviewing the water and sewerage charges exemption scheme to support charities whose income exceeds the exemption limit due to them receiving funds for important new projects.

Answered by: Roseanna Cunningham 19 February 2019

A review of the exemption scheme, published on 6 March 2018, concluded that the qualifying income levels remain relevant. There is therefore no further review planned at this time.
