mikeyboy Posted February 1, 2018 Report Share Posted February 1, 2018 (edited) Can you explain what leverage the Scottish government can use to get a larger block grant? The Scottish government figures show that the block grant will be reduced by 9.2% in real terms through the life of this parliament. The Fraser of Allander institute calculates that the Block grant has reduced by something like 5% since 2010/11 but that new borrowing powers will reduce this a bit.There was an interesting comment though that due to interest rates and rising prices etc that the actual buying power had dropped by 7.4% in this time. Is the Local government settlement being reduced in real terms? Edited February 1, 2018 by mikeyboy Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
