Regarding the £400,000 donation made to Pakistan by the Scottish Government. Since foreign aid is an area reserved to the UK government, I assume this donation must have come from one of the Scottish Government's devolved budgets. I would be grateful if you could tell me which budget this donation has come from.
Thank you for your email on 16 March 2019 regarding the £400,000 scholarship funding for women and girls in Pakistan.
The £400,000 funding for the Pakistan Scholarships is through our International Development Fund as part of our established International Development programme within the Culture, Tourism and External Affairs portfolio.
