To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer, with reference to paragraph 1.161 on page 50 of the 2020 Budget Red Book, if he will publish details of the derivation of the extra £640 million to the Scottish budget for (a) capital and (b) revenue; and in which financial years that money will be allocated to the Scottish Government.

HM Treasury’s Block Grant Transparency publication sets out the breakdown of changes in the devolved administration block grants, including all Barnett consequentials. The next edition of the Block Grant Transparency is due to be published later in the Spring on the gov.uk website and will include details of the Barnett consequentials announced at Budget 2020.

All £640 million of Barnett consequentials for the Scottish Government announced at Budget 2020 relate to financial year 2020-21 and are on top of the £1.3 billion of Barnett consequentials for 2020-21 provided at Spending Round 2019.
