My officials continue to engage with the Islands Councils in order to understand their aspirations for a Deal.

We have either agreed a Deal or have agreed to negotiate a Deal, for each of Scotland’s seven cities, along with Ayrshire and our Borderlands. This amounts to a commitment so far of over £1 billion to support economic growth across Scotland. In consultation with HM Treasury, I hope to agree commitments to further Deals in due course.
