Scottish Spending Review 2011 and Draft Budget 2012-13

Listen

Chapter 6 Introduction

This section of the document provides greater detail on the Draft Budget for 2012-13 and the spending plans for the following two years for each portfolio. The Draft Budget 2012-13 will, subject to parliamentary consideration, form the basis of the Budget Bill 2012-13, which will be laid before the Scottish Parliament in January 2012.

OUR SPENDING PLANS

The following four tables lay out the Scottish Government spending plans for the financial years 2011-12 to 2014-15.

The Scottish Government's Total Managed Expenditure ( TME) amounts to £34 billion in 2012-13, including the Departmental Expenditure Limit ( DEL) of £28.3 billion announced as part of the UK Government Spending Review in October 2010.

In order to manage our budgets over the Spending Review period, we will make use of the Budget Exchange Scheme agreed with HM Treasury, whereby we can carry forward underspends, within agreed limits, and draw them down in the following year.
