Stevenson Urges Support for Budget from North-East MSPs

Banffshire and Buchan Coast MSP Stewart Stevenson has called on his parliamentary colleagues across the North-East to back the Finance Secretary’s plans to secure “substantial” funding for the area.

MSPs will vote on the plans next month.

Commenting, Stewart Stevenson MSP, said:

“With spending on Scotland’s colleges set to rise by over £600 million, the Finance Secretary’s budget proposals for the year will come as great news for North East Scotland College and other institutions across the country.

“I am calling on local politicians from across the chamber to get behind the plans to secure substantial funding for colleges and universities throughout the North-East.”

Chief Executive of Colleges Scotland, Shona Struthers, said:

“This is a significant financial commitment by the Scottish Government. We are also pleased that there will be additional capital funding which will be used to fund the existing commitment to upgrade one specific campus and allow colleges to carry out essential maintenance.”
