The Scottish Executive considers Scots and its regional forms to be an important part of Scotland’s distinctive linguistic and cultural heritage. The Scottish Executive does not offer financial support directly to organisations for the purpose of promoting Scots. Such support is provided principally through the Scottish Arts Council’s (SAC) literature department and I will ask the Chair of the SAC to write to the member with this information. Details of grants made by the SAC to organisations promoting Doric or Lallans Scots are not centrally collated.
