Tory MSP Alex Johnstone has lodged a written question in the Scottish Parliament on the money which was not spent as part of the Town Centre Regeneration Fund.
Commenting, Mr Johnstone said “Several constituents have voiced concerns that Brechin was not alone in not spending the full award.
“I have asked the Scottish Government for a breakdown by constituency on how much of the cash was not used.”
“Clearly, the failure to spend this money continues to anger Brechiners.
“I am keen to find out if what happened in Brechin also happened elsewhere in Scotland.
“If it has, I want to know how much other areas lost too and compare this with what happened in Angus.”
