Mr. Galbraith

[holding answer 18 January 1999]: I announced details of the Innovation Fund for children's services in November 1998. No funds have been allocated from the fund for the financial years 1997–98 and 1998–99.

The total amount made available in the next three financial years is as follows:

£ million
1999–2000 2
2000–01 4
2001–02 3

No funds have been allocated to running costs.

As health related expenditure the Fund will come under the control of the Scottish Parliament.
