Boris in Scotland

The Prime Minister made his first official visit to Scotland today, where he announced the expansion of Growth Deals to open up opportunities across our Union so people in every corner of the United Kingdom can realise their potential.

 

  • The Growth Deals across Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland will be backed by £300 million of new funding.

 

  • First launched in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland in 2014, we have already committed £2.78 billion for these deals.

 

  • Through this new funding, the Conservative government will begin new deals in Falkirk, the Islands, Argyll & Bute, Mid South West Northern Ireland and Causeway Coast and Glens. We will also complete deals already in negotiation in North Wales, Mid Wales, Derry-Londonderry and Moray.

 

  • The Growth Deals pledge follows the Prime Minister’s announcement over the weekend for a £3.6 billion Towns Fund supporting an initial 100 towns in England.
