The total UK Government cost to date of “What Staying in the United Kingdom Means for Scotland” is £723,501 (plus VAT).

This works out at the equivalent of 30p per household for the entire process of design, production and delivery. Further detail will be published in the usual fashion in the Cabinet Office transparency returns.

The Scotland Office incurred no costs in the production or creation of the booklet. Staffing costs were taken from existing Scotland Office budgets.
