Scottish Fossil Fuel Levy

That this House condemns the Government's refusal to give Scotland the promised immediate and unconditional access to 191 million of Scotland's fossil fuel levy monies; expresses concern at proposals within the Comprehensive Spending Review to place the money in a green investment bank; notes that Ministers have providedno details on the timing of the bank's creation, its governance, business model or funding sources; and believes that the Government's action is damaging to Scotland's economy, and that these funds should be released to invest in key renewables projects and jobs without further delay.
