To ask the Scottish Government whether it plans to make changes to the General Revenue Grant if its proposals to change the council tax multipliers for properties in bands E to H are implemented, and, if so, what effect this would have on the distribution of funding among different local authorities.
The consultation has closed, the responses will be considered carefully along with the analysis and no decisions have been taken. The local government needs-based formula used to distribute the quantum of funding available for Local Government is kept under constant review and is agreed with COSLA on behalf of all thirty-two local authorities each year.
