Public Expenditure

Volume 474: debated on Thursday 24 April 2008

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer how much additional public spending under the Barnett formula is expected to be received by (a) Scotland, (b) Wales and (c) Northern Ireland in (i) 2008-09, (ii) 2009-10, (iii) 2010-11 and (iv) 2011-12 as a result of public spending on the London 2012 Olympics. (200239)

The 2012 Olympics is being held on behalf of the whole of the UK. It is therefore not devolved spending and there are no Barnett consequentials for Scotland, Wales or Northern Ireland. Wider spending on London does attract Barnett consequentials in the normal way.
