We are working closely with the Scottish Government to ensure it has the necessary funds to help secure jobs and protect the economy through the pandemic.

The Scottish Government has been allocated a total of nearly £3.8 billion of Barnett consequentials to support public services and businesses, with over £2.3 billion for business support alone.

This is on top of the unprecedented UK-wide measures the Chancellor announced since the start of the pandemic, including help for the self-employed, three-month mortgage holidays, funding for research, and extending Statutory Sick Pay.
