I have regular discussions with my cabinet colleagues, including the Chancellor, on a wide range of issues.

In February, the Scottish Government and the United Kingdom Government signed the agreement on the Scottish Government’s fiscal framework.

As set out in the Smith Agreement, changes in the Scottish Government’s block grant will continue to be determined via the operation of the Barnett Formula.
