Question reference: S6W-25481

  • Date lodged: 12 February 2024
  • Current status: Answered by Tom Arthur on 11 March 2024


To ask the Scottish Government, in light of the announcement by the Secretary of State for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities on 24 January 2024 regarding additional funding for local authorities of £600 million, how much the Scottish Government will receive in Barnett consequential funding, and if the quantum is not yet known, when it expects to (a) receive and (b) publish this information.


The announcement on 24 January of a £600m package for councils in England only resulted in £500m of new funding when the detail of the UK Budget was published on 6 March.

This package generated £48m, of the total £293m, barnett consequentials accruing to the Scottish Government as a result of the UK Budget.
