  • Scotland's public finances in 2022-23 and the impact of COVID-19: Call for views

    Created: 26/07/2021

    What are your views on Scotland’s public finances in 2022-23 and how they have been affected by COVID-19? The Scottish Parliament's Finance and Public Administration Committee would like to hear your views on this topic as part of its pre-budget scrutiny.

    In particular, the Committee is keen to hear how the Scottish Government’s budget in 2022-23 should address the following questions:

    • How should the Scottish Government's Budget for 2022-23 address the need for a fair and equal recovery from the Covid crisis
    • How should the Scottish Government’s Budget address the different impacts of the pandemic across age, income and education groups and across places?
    • In 2022-23, it is likely that there will be reduced levels of available Covid-related financial support for the public and private sector. Given this, what should be the priorities for the Scottish Government’s Budget?
    • How should the Scottish Government Budget in 2022-23 address the risks arising from the level and rate of recovery from the pandemic in Scotland relative to the rest of the UK? Please consider any impact on devolved tax receipts and social security benefits in your answer.
    • How has the Fiscal Framework worked in managing the response to the crisis?
    • How should learnings from the pandemic inform the forthcoming review of the Fiscal Framework?
