Scotland: Grants

Volume 712: debated on Monday 20 July 2009

Question

Asked by

To ask Her Majesty's Government whether they have estimated what the difference in grant size would be between the Scottish Block Grant under the Barnett Formula and a needs-based grant system for Scotland; and, if so, what is their estimate. [HL4917]

The Government do not have any current plans to change the Barnett formula and therefore are not in a position to provide such an estimate.
