Current status: Answered by John Swinney on 28 May 2014


Answer

The Scottish Government has on 28 May 2014 published the report Outlook for Scotland’s Public Finances and the Opportunities of Independence. The report expands the analysis of Scotland’s public finances provided in Scotland’s Future by demonstrating how they could evolve over a range of time periods and under different assumptions about the division of assets and liabilities held by the UK Government and wider public sector, and Scotland’s economic performance.

The report is available from:
