Public Audit Committee 17 December 2014 : Wednesday, December 17, 2014
Gil Paterson

Will using the adjustment that you have described make the deal cash neutral, or is there the potential for the Scottish Government to lose revenue?



Public Audit Committee 17 December 2014 : Wednesday, December 17, 2014
Gil Paterson

I will take a slightly different direction. The Auditor General’s report states that

“Scottish and UK ministers are still to agree the adjustment to the block grant for the devolved taxes”,

and goes on to say that

“the Scottish Government has assumed that the reduction to the block grant in 2015/16 will allow it to meet the funding requirements of its budget and potentially establish the first payment into the cash reserve.”

Do you have any information for the committee on what the implications will be if the Government’s assumption is not met?

Public Audit Committee 17 December 2014 : Wednesday, December 17, 2014
Gil Paterson

In other words, when it comes to public sector contracts, what happens is that a tender is made and we get cost savings because of the efficiency with which the work is carried out.



Public Audit Committee 17 December 2014 : Wednesday, December 17, 2014
Gil Paterson

Is it possible for what the convener describes to happen because of the tender process that is involved?



Public Audit Committee 17 December 2014 : Wednesday, December 17, 2014
Gil Paterson

Can I come back in, again from a business perspective?



Public Audit Committee 17 December 2014 : Wednesday, December 17, 2014
Gil Paterson

You misled me.



Public Audit Committee 17 December 2014 : Wednesday, December 17, 2014
Gil Paterson

Can I ask my question?



Public Audit Committee 17 December 2014 : Wednesday, December 17, 2014
Gil Paterson

Is that not related to the tendering process?



Public Audit Committee 17 December 2014 : Wednesday, December 17, 2014
Gil Paterson

I think that the question was whether it was possible to overestimate the budget.
