To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, how many Bounce Back Loans have been approved in Scotland to date; and what the total value is of those loans.
As of 21 June, 921,229 loans have been issued under the Bounce Back Loan Scheme (BBLS), with a total value of £28.09 billion.
Issuing new loans is the priority for lenders and the Government.
At this time, we are unable to provide a breakdown of lending or number of applications by region or devolved region. We are working with the British Business Bank, HM Treasury and the lenders on regular and transparent data publication going forward.
