Dear Sir or Madam,
Please could you confirm what payments, if any, would be made to the devolved regions of the UK as a result of applying the Barnett formula to the cost of building the proposed Scotland to London High Speed Rail link.
I appreciate that the project is at a planning stage and that the question is to some extent hypothetical but, assuming the project is completed at the estimate of £34bn and that current arrangements for the Barnett formula apply, what payments would be made?
Dear Mr Jones
I am writing to acknowledge receipt of your request for information about the proposed high speed rail link which has been allocated the above reference number. A response will be issued to you in due course.

Dear Stephen Wolstenholme,
Thank you for your considered reply. It is difficult to respond to hypothetical questions and I appreciate the detailed explanation given.
