Dear Scottish Government,

I note in GERs 2013-14 the following

Box 3.3: Comparison of Scottish revenue estimates with other parts of the UK (Experimental Statistics)

“The chart below shows estimates of public sector revenue per head for each of the UK countries and regions relative to the UK average. Scotland is estimated to raise the fifth most onshore revenue per person of the UK regions. When an illustrative geographical share of North Sea revenue is included, tax revenue per person in Scotland is estimated to be the fourth highest of the UK countries and regions, behind London, the South East, and East England.”
