Scottish Budget

Draft Budget 2014-15 sets out the Scottish Government's spending plans.

Key priorities outlined in the document include:

    • accelerating the economic recovery while creating jobs and new opportunities, through the transition to a low carbon economy;
    • Maintaining our commitment to a social wage for the people of Scotland and addressing the implications of welfare reform; and
    • protecting our public services by taking forward an ambitious programme of public service reform, driving a shift in resources to preventative approaches and delivering improved outcomes for people and communities.
