Jack Gamble, director of the Campaign for the Arts, said: “Creative Scotland’s reserves were meant to throw a lifeline to those unsuccessful in their next funding round.

This broken promise from the Scottish Government means 40 per cent of those reserves are now gone – and that will have consequences.

“Ultimately, artists, organisations, the economy and the people of Scotland will all be worse off from this decision.”
