FOI reference: FOI/202100138838 £66 billion revenues!

The request was refused by Scottish Government.

Dear Scottish Government,

You made the following statement:

"The £66 billion refers to all public revenue raised in Scotland, including non-tax revenue, such as student loan income and the operating surpluses of public corporations. A breakdown is provided in Table 1.1."

My FOI request:

How much of said £66 billion revenue was spent by
A
Scottish Government, Scottish local government, other Scottish public bodies?
B
Westminster Government?
C
% of ' £66bn revenue' spent by Westminster & identified as 'for Scotland' (£16bn DWP etc)
D
% of '£66bn revenue' spent by Westminster & identified as NON-REGIONAL?

To be clear
This FOI request is in relation to claimed "£66 billion revenues' only.

Yours faithfully,

Mary Jones

Scottish Government

Dear Scottish Government,

Astonished at your expected reply!

Clearly you're not aware the data & info I requested is published in a half truthful way in GERS table 4.8.
(which I discovered after my FOI request was raised)

Anyway - Credit where it's due! (Hopefully next time around a more senior person will respond)

Yours faithfully,

Mary Jones
