The Scottish Government has been accused of slow progress on a pledge to equip all pupils with digital devices and free internet connections.

Despite a manifesto pledge to roll out the equipment and services to young people, the government has been unable to confirm the number of devices required, the means by which the roll out will be achieved, or the expected cost of the programme.

Critics said the Scottish National Party’s (SNP) promises to young people are “gimmicks” and demanded “meaningful action” to improve digital access. The government insists that fulfilling its manifesto pledge is a “key commitment”.
