UK spending in Scotland to help the fight against coronavirus has topped £10 billion, according to new figures.
A breakdown has been published which includes money through the Barnett Formula as well as Scotland’s share of the Job Retention Scheme, self-employed income support scheme, business loans and other spending.
Pamela Nash, chief executive of Scotland in Union, said:
“This welcome support for Scotland’s fight against COVID-19 comes from being part of the UK.
“The broad shoulders of the UK are helping every nation and region during these difficult times.
“It’s important that governments remain focused on recovering from the coronavirus crisis, bringing people together and working in the interests of everyone in Scotland.”
