Dear Scottish Government,

More than 157,000 self-employed people in Scotland are due to benefit from £777 million of grants from the UK Government’s Self-Employed Income Support Scheme.

More than £1.8 billion of extra funding has been allocated to tackling the impact of coronavirus (COVID-19) in Scotland.

https://www.gov.scot/news/latest-covid-1...

Has all the funding for both schemes been distributed as yet, and if not, how much has yet to be allocated?

Yours faithfully,

Donald Scott

Scottish Government

Dear Scottish Government,

I thought my request was quite straightforward.

I can only apologise if it wasn't clear which schemes I referred to. The two schemes are:

1. Grants from UK Government’s Self-Employed Income Support Scheme.

2. Additional funding from HM government allocated to tackling the impact of coronavirus (COVID-19) in Scotland.

Both are included in my initial request under FOI terms.

Yours faithfully,

Donald Scott
