The Scottish Government is injecting over £1.7 billion into City Region and Growth Deals in Glasgow, Edinburgh, Aberdeen, Inverness, Stirling, Tay Cities, Ayrshire and Borderlands. You can read more about the Deals here.
Despite the support from the Scottish Government, the UK government’s investment continues to fall short. The Scottish Government has already committed £388 million more than the UK Government to City and Region deals in Scotland.
We want to see all of Scotland benefit from growth deals and have made clear our commitment to 100 per cent coverage, we will continue to demand that the UK government stumps up and matches the missing millions.
