European Structural Funds Ministerial Statement, 09/05/12 [S]

During the meeting of the Scottish Parliament on 9 May 2012 the Cabinet Secretary for Infrastructure and Capital Investment, Alex Neil, made a statement on the future of European structural funds from 2014.

The Cabinet Secretary said:

"I will ask the structural funds programme committee in the lowlands and uplands area to prioritise youth employment with the structural funds that remain unallocated in the period up to 2014. That could provide up to 25 million support for a range of initiatives from training to business development and recruitment incentives which, along with match funding, would guarantee total investment of at least 50 million".

For full details see the Scottish Parliament Official Report 9 May 2012 which is available from the Scottish Parliament website.
