Information requested

Could you provide me with the Scottish Government annual budget(s), revenue and capital available to the Scottish Parliament for year 2018-19 and any additional money made available to the Scottish Government by the Chancellor of the Exchequer during 2018-19

Response

The annual budget, revenue and capital figures available to the Scottish Government for 2018-19 can be found in Table 1.02 on page 8 of the ‘Scottish Budget: 2019-20’ publication. A link to this can be found here.

Since the publication of the Scottish Budget: 2019-20 document on 12 December 2018, HM Treasury added a further £441m in Barnett Consequentials and other transfers (comprising £343m of resource funding and £98m of capital funding) to the Scottish Budget, of which £148m were consequentials from reserve claims made by Department of Health and Department of Justice (comprising £126m of resource funding and £22m of capital funding). HM Treasury have indicated that the Scottish Government will have the flexibility to draw down the £148m figure in 2019-20 due to the lateness of the notification. Details of this were published by HM Treasury on Monday 11 February.
