S5W-20907: Jackie Baillie (Dumbarton)

Scottish Labour

Date lodged: 10 January 2019

To ask the Scottish Government what Barnett consequentials it receives from the UK Government as a result of the Service Pupil Premium.

Answered by: John Swinney 17 January 2019

At a Spending Review, Barnett consequentials are determined on a departmental level as opposed to a programme level, it is therefore not possible to isolate the financial impact of individual spending decisions.

Whilst is not possible to determine the specific impact, any consequentials from Pupil Premium, of which Service Pupil Premium is a sub programme, were reflected in the Scottish Government's total allocation announced in the 2010 Spending Review.
