Question S2W-25205

To ask the Scottish Executive, further to the answer to question S2W-17434 by Hugh Henry on 21 June 2005, what additional support it is making available to emergency planning strategic co-ordinating groups so that they can continue to lead improvements in civil protection capabilities.

Hugh Henry explained our intention to make funding available for co-ordinator posts in each of the eight strategic co-ordinating groups across Scotland to support their crucial role in implementing the statutory duties imposed by the Civil Contingencies Act 2004. At that time, two areas’ proposals for co-ordinator posts had been approved (Dumfries and Galloway and Central). I am pleased to announce that proposals from all eight areas have now been approved and that all the posts are expected to be filled by the end of May at a total annual cost of £430,000.
