Scotland’s Budget 2011-12

These reports were published in November 2010.

“This Budget outlines spending plans which, in the current climate, best deliver for the people of Scotland. It is a Budget which prioritises jobs and economic recovery, public services, families and communities. It is a Budget which is informed by equality considerations and a strong commitment to protect the most vulnerable in our society, but it is cast in the context of unprecedented cuts in public spending.”

The Scottish Government’s budget has been cut by £1.3 billion in 2011-12. Resource money available for public services will be cut by £500 million. £800 million will be cut from capital spending which provides for housing, transport, schools and other public infrastructure. There is no way therefore to avoid taking difficult decisions.
