Assesses where the Scottish Government is proposing to spend public money and how it aims to reduce inequality. It is a supporting document to the Scottish Budget and should be read alongside associated Budget publications.


This section summarises some of the key impacts of the budget by portfolio. It draws on information from Annex B, which provides further detail, and sets out two key risks or issues identified by each portfolio in relation to each characteristic, and how the budget tackles those issues.

Further detail is also in Annex C, through the use of case studies, on how the government has considered equality and fairness evidence as part of the budget process.
