Written Answers — Scotland Office: Emergency Services: Scotland (14 Dec 2017)

David Mundell: Under the previous arrangements, Scottish services were locally-funded and were able to recover VAT under UK law, but the new bodies became ineligible to recover VAT as they were no longer locally funded.

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Superfast Broadband (6 Dec 2017)

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Superfast Broadband (6 Dec 2017)

David Mundell: I thank the hon. Gentleman for that question. The Minister for Digital made it very clear that his approach to local authorities was based on the fact that the Scottish Government, who previously had responsibility for the roll-out, are three years behind on rolling out broadband in Scotland, and that is not good enough for people living in any of Scotland’s local authority areas. The...

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Superfast Broadband (6 Dec 2017)

David Mundell: I absolutely agree with my hon. Friend. Connectivity is at the heart of the proposal that the five cross-border local authorities have brought forward in the borderlands package. My hon. Friend will be aware that the original intention for the roll-out of broadband in Scotland was to focus on the south of Scotland but, in their centralising way, the SNP Scottish Government put a stop to that.

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Superfast Broadband (6 Dec 2017)

David Mundell: I very much accept the point that the hon. Gentleman makes. It is not good enough for RBS to say that people can rely on internet and mobile banking when so many people in Scotland do not have access to the internet or effective mobile services. When I meet the Royal Bank tomorrow, I will convey the concerns—I think from across the House—about its programme of closures.

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Superfast Broadband (6 Dec 2017)

David Mundell: This is not even about funding; it is about spending the money and taking action to roll out broadband. Three years ago—I repeat, three years ago—there was an allocation of funding, and no action has been taken to procure the roll-out.
