Scottish Conservative and Unionist Party

Date lodged: 5 February 2019

To ask the Scottish Government whether the Attainment Scotland Fund is budgeted to continue beyond 2020-21 and, if so, for how long.

Answered by: John Swinney 21 February 2019

The £750 million Attainment Scotland Fund is committed over the course of this parliament. This Government has been clear in its commitment to closing the poverty related attainment gap and we have no plans to stop investment in the Attainment Scotland Fund to deliver that in future years.
