Council Leader welcomes the significant additional investment in local government

Council Leader responds to the Cabinet Secretary's announcement.

City of Edinburgh Council Leader, Adam McVey, said: “I welcome the significant additional investment in local government announced by the Cabinet Secretary in Parliament today. This is a positive deal for the Capital and for councils across Scotland. 

“We are currently analysing the figures in more detail but it is clear that we will now be able to invest significantly more in priority areas, such as social care and homelessness, when we set our budget for the next financial year (on February 22).

“While there will undoubtedly be financial challenges ahead, we will continue to work constructively with the Scottish Government to deliver the best possible deal for Edinburgh, delivering a balanced budget through effective financial management and workforce planning.”
