Depreciation Fund and Student Suppot Funds Written Answer, 5/05/15 [S]

Written answer given in response to Margaret McDougall (Lab) question asking the Scottish Government whether it considers it appropriate to advise colleges to use depreciation funds to cover shortfalls in student support funds and what it is doing to assist colleges that do not have such funds available.

The Cabinet Secreatry for Education and Lifelong Learning, Angela Constance replied, that by taking decisive action around this technical accounting issue, we have protected the college sector’s ability to spend its full budget allocation and, in doing so, have filled the student support gap in 2014-15.

For the full answer to this and other questions see the Scottish Parliament Written Answer Report 5 May  2015 which is available from the Scottish Parliament website.
