We have confronted this virus as one United Kingdom and worked with the devolved administrations every step of the way.

On top of an unprecedented package of UK-wide support for businesses and individuals, totalling £330 billion, we are providing £6.5 billion to help Scotland fight coronavirus. This is including an extra £2.7 billion announced this Summer alone.

We provided an unprecedented upfront guarantee, which will give the Scottish Government the certainty and financial flexibility to plan for the months ahead.
