  1. [quote name='Krackersdave' timestamp='1329176838' post='3260709' Again - no help - those are proposed changes for 2010 onwards... Not proposed The Scottish Government published a discussion paper in May 2011 proposing a number of changes to the treatment of the expenditure on the London Olympics and Commonwealth Games in GERS to more accurately capture the benefits accruing to Scotland from this expenditure. As a result of this consultation the following changes have been made to the data in PESA 2011 before being used in GERS: • All capital expenditure associated with the Olympics has been assigned to London, on the basis that this will capture the lasting benefit to the city of the infrastructure and regeneration associated with the games. • Current expenditure on the Olympics has been assigned across the countries and regions of the UK using the projected regional distribution of the associated increase in tourism expenditure. • All current and capital expenditure associated with the Commonwealth Games continues to be assigned to Scotland. These adjustments reduce the estimates of Scottish public sector expenditure by £92 million in 2008-09 and £91 million in 2009-10, as summarised http://www.scotland.gov.uk/Resource/Doc/352173/0118332.pdf what was you saying about scotland contributing 9% to the London olympics? you need to go and play back on newsnet - they believe anything posted there except the truth
  2. scotlands contribution to the olympics as per GERs = £0.00 , zero The Scottish Government published a discussion paper in May 2011 proposing a number of changes to the treatment of the expenditure on the London Olympics and Commonwealth Games in GERS to more accurately capture the benefits accruing to Scotland from this expenditure. As a result of this consultation the following changes have been made to the data in PESA 2011 before being used in GERS: • All capital expenditure associated with the Olympics has been assigned to London, on the basis that this will capture the lasting benefit to the city of the infrastructure and regeneration associated with the games. • Current expenditure on the Olympics has been assigned across the countries and regions of the UK using the projected regional distribution of the associated increase in tourism expenditure. • All current and capital expenditure associated with the Commonwealth Games continues to be assigned to Scotland. These adjustments reduce the estimates of Scottish public sector expenditure by £92 million in 2008-09 and £91 million in 2009-10, as summarised glad to help!
  3. According to the snp dodgy GERs report which allocates to scotland things like 8.4% of Air Passenger Duty raised at Heathrow airport and UK oil + gas and 8.6% of stamp share tax from the London stock exchange: £48 billion revenue £62 billion expenditure glad to help.
  4. 54,000 Londoners pay more in income tax than the 5.2 million residents of scotland according to HMRC. http://www.hmrc.gov.uk/stats/income_distribution/table-3-11-feb2010.pdf
  5. You seem to of overlooked that scotland with only 8.4% of the population consumed according to the snp governments GERS report 9.3% of public expenditure... bless you! "In 2009-10, total public sector expenditure for the benefit of Scotland, plus a per capita share of debt interest payments, was £62.1 billion. This is equivalent to 9.3% of total UK public sector expenditure.". . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

  6. Chairman of Scottish tourism agency says abundant water resources could be sold to England if climate change pushes up cost and supply
  7. GERS is compiled by statisticians and economists in the Office of the Chief Economic Adviser of the Scottish Government. The Scottish Government's Chief Statistician takes responsibility for this publication. http://www.scotland.gov.uk/Topics/Statistics/Browse/Economy/GERS
  8. So why are they claiming 8.4% now? Any nat worth his salt flys via Amsterdam - I dont see the snp claiming any APD from Holland.
  9. 8.4% of APD revenue from Heathrow claimed as 'scottish' yet from the 68 million passengers at Heathrow: Jim Fitzpatrick (Poplar and Limehouse, Labour) To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what information her Department holds on the number of people who have flown from (a) Aberdeen and ( Edinburgh to overseas destinations via Heathrow airport in each of the last three years. Theresa Villiers (Minister of State (Rail and Aviation), Transport; Chipping Barnet, Conservative) In 2009 it is estimated that approximately 150,000 people flew from Aberdeen to an overseas destination via Heathrow and 340,000 flew to an overseas destination from Edinburgh via Heathrow. A similar number would have made the same journey in the other direction, flying from an overseas destination to Aberdeen or Edinburgh via Heathrow. http://www.theyworkforyou.com/wrans/?id=2011-11-23a.81204.h&s=heathrow+aberdeen+edinburgh#g81204.q0 68 million passengers Heathrow http://www.caa.co.uk/docs/80/airport_data_prov/201111/November_2011_Provisional_Airport_Statistics.pdf
  10. net fiscal balance! In 2009-10, Scotland's estimated net fiscal balance was a deficit of £19.9 billion (17.8 per cent of GDP) when excluding North Sea revenue, a deficit of £19.3 billion (17.0 per cent of GDP) when including a per capita share of North Sea revenue or a deficit of £14.0 billion (10.6 per cent of GDP) when an illustrative geographical share of North Sea revenue is included. In 2009-10, the equivalent UK position including 100 per cent of North Sea revenue, referred to in the UK Public Sector Accounts as 'net borrowing', was a deficit of £156.5 billion (or 11.1 per cent of GDP). http://www.scotland.gov.uk/Publications/2011/06/21144516/1
  11. If what you imply is true - then the following as per GERS snp must be true: In 2009-10, the estimated current budget balance for the public sector in Scotland was a deficit of £14.9 billion (13.4 per cent of GDP) excluding North Sea revenue, a deficit of £14.4 billion (12.6 per cent of GDP) including a per capita share of North Sea revenue or a deficit of £9.0 billion (6.8 per cent of GDP) including an illustrative geographical share of North Sea revenue. In 2009-10, the UK as a whole ran a current budget deficit, including 100 per cent of North Sea revenue, of £107.3 billion (7.6% of GDP). http://www.scotland.gov.uk/Publications/2011/06/21144516/1
  12. The figures as provided by GERS clearly includes all taxes, as well as 8.4% of air passenger duty raised from Heathrow and and every other airport in the UK, scotland also claims 8.63% of the stamp duty raised on stocks and shares traded in London (which geographicaly is located in England).
  13. scotland spent it, hence the snp governments own talked up figures: "In 2009-10, total public sector expenditure for the benefit of Scotland, plus a per capita share of debt interest payments, was £62.1 billion. This is equivalent to 9.3% of total UK public sector expenditure.". . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
