Meeting of the Parliament 25 June 2014 : Wednesday, June 25, 2014
The Deputy First Minister and Cabinet Secretary for Infrastructure, Investment and Cities (Nicola Sturgeon) It is not relevant.



Infrastructure and Capital Investment Committee 18 June 2014 : Wednesday, June 18, 2014
The Deputy First Minister and Cabinet Secretary for Infrastructure, Investment and Cities (Nicola Sturgeon) Thank you, convener, and I thank the committee for inviting me to provide an update on progress in providing Scotland with a world-class digital infrastructure.

In July 2013, shortly after my previous update to the committee on the topic, the Government signed the second of two contracts ...

Infrastructure and Capital Investment Committee 18 June 2014 : Wednesday, June 18, 2014
Nicola Sturgeon We are on track to meet that. The information that I gave about the Highlands and Islands suggests that, at this stage of the game, the project is slightly ahead of schedule. As I have said, the first cabinet in the Highlands and Islands went live in February and BT has surpassed its first contractu...

Infrastructure and Capital Investment Committee 18 June 2014 : Wednesday, June 18, 2014
Nicola Sturgeon I will let Colin Cook answer that.



Infrastructure and Capital Investment Committee 18 June 2014 : Wednesday, June 18, 2014
Nicola Sturgeon We are trying to be as transparent as possible and ensure that the information that is provided for public access is as full as possible. We want to ensure that, by the time communities are given detailed information on roll-out and timescale, the work has been done to ensure that the information is...

Infrastructure and Capital Investment Committee 18 June 2014 : Wednesday, June 18, 2014
Nicola Sturgeon Absolutely, but you need to know that when the information is reliable. There is no point in being told right now that a particular community will not be included when there is a prospect that it might be, or vice versa. There is a balance to be struck between having speedy information, which we as ...

Infrastructure and Capital Investment Committee 18 June 2014 : Wednesday, June 18, 2014
Nicola Sturgeon No. I said that we are working with 67 communities, not that 67 projects have been signed off.

Infrastructure and Capital Investment Committee 18 June 2014 : Wednesday, June 18, 2014
Nicola Sturgeon In case I inadvertently gave anyone the wrong impression in my opening statement—although I do not think that I did—I should for clarity advise the committee that community broadband Scotland is actively engaged with 67 communities throughout Scotland, all of which are at different stages in the pro...

Infrastructure and Capital Investment Committee 18 June 2014 : Wednesday, June 18, 2014
Nicola Sturgeon I have given those assurances in my update on the superfast broadband programme.

The research to which you refer is a piece of work that two professors at the University of Edinburgh have produced for the RSE. As one would expect, Government officials have looked very carefully at that r...

Infrastructure and Capital Investment Committee 18 June 2014 : Wednesday, June 18, 2014
Nicola Sturgeon In early 2013, as the committee is probably aware, we published a report called “Digital Scotland 2020: Achieving World-Class digital infrastructure: a final report to the Scottish Government”. That research helped to inform the 2020 vision that we set out.

We did not publish a full plan ...
