Children and Young People Bill Written Answer, 07/03/14 [S]

Written Answer given in response to Jayne Baxter's (Lab) question asking the Scottish Government when it will publish the revised capital costs associated with the Children and Young People (Scotland) Bill.

The Cabinet Secretary for Education, Michael Russell, replied that these costs will be provided to the Finance Committee at the very earliest opportunity and the Cabinet Secretary will give evidence on those costs once they are available.

Subject to agreement of the final cost estimates, the Scottish Government is committed to funding additional costs of the extension of early learning and childcare provisions. This will be new money to add into the local government settlement.
