The UK Government is delivering for Scotland. Another £1.9 billion in Barnett consequentials is now guaranteed for Scotland to protect our vital public services and defend jobs.
That means the total extra funding to tackle coronavirus is now £6.5 billion this year, on top of the block grant. The UK Treasury has also protected the income of a third of the Scottish workforce and thousands of Scottish businesses have now benefited from UK Government backed loans.
This is the Union in action, and its value has never been more obvious.
