Scottish Conservative and Unionist Party

Date lodged: 20 December 2018

To ask the Scottish Government how much The Moray Council has received in (a) revenue support /general revenue grant, (b) non-domestic rate income and (c) specific revenue grants in each of the last 10 years, also expressed in real terms.

Answered by: Kate Forbes 16 January 2019

Total revenue funding split by general revenue grant, non-domestic rate income and specific revenue grants provided by the Scottish Government to Moray Council in each of the last 10 years, is set out in a document that has been placed in the Scottish Parliament Information Centre, Bib number 60402.

It should be noted that funding for Police and Fire transferred out of the local government finance settlement with effect from 1 April 2013. As a result the years before 2013-14 and the years from 2013-14 are not comparable.

The figures for the years 2009-2018 are all final outturn figures, for 2018-19 the figures are near final and for 2019-20 they are budget figures.

The real terms figures were calculated using the November 2018 GDP deflators.
