This facility was fully drawn in the financial year 2017-18 and the expenditure will be recorded in the Scottish Government’s Consolidated Accounts for 2017-18 when they are published in September 2018.
The Consolidated Accounts of the Scottish Government for the years before 2017-18 are available from the Scottish Government’s website.
