Date responded

Information requested

How much money was allocated by Scottish Enterprise to each individual arms manufacturer located in Scotland in the year 2021-22 and how much in total was allocated to these arms companies in Scotland in 2021-22?

SE requested clarification, as we do not categorise companies as arms manufacturers. Requestor advised that they were referring to all aerospace, defence and marine (ADM) contractors.

Response

There has been one payment made to ADM companies in 2021-22, which was a £1,500 Innovation grant payment to Chemring Energetics UK Limited.

The total amount of funding provided to ADM companies in 2021-22 to date is also therefore £1,500.

Please note our support is predominately focused on diversification and sustaining employment, and does not in any way relate to the manufacture or export of munitions.
