Volume 468: debated on Wednesday 28 November 2007

10. To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland what public expenditure per person is planned for Scotland in each of the next five years. (167466)

Spending plans for the next three years were included in the recently released comprehensive spending review providing Scotland with total departmental expenditure limits of £27.2 billion in 2008-09, £28.4 billion in 2009-10 and £29.7 billion in 2010-11.

Scotland also benefits from direct spend from Whitehall Departments in reserved areas, which accounts for just under half of all public spending in Scotland.
