Dear Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport,

Under the Scotland Act 1998, internet and wireless technology, including broadband, is a power reserved to Westminster.

The Scottish Government provides figures on its investment on this critical area, but I have been unable to find equivalent figures from the UK Government.

Therefore, I would be grateful if you could provide me with the following: for each of the last 10 years, how much money has the UK Government given to the Scottish Government earmarked specifically for broadband infrastructure in Scotland?

Yours faithfully,

Kristian Healey-Ryder
