Spending Review 2020 is for the whole of the UK. For Scotland, SR20 confirms an additional £2.4 billion for the Scottish Government on top of its baseline for 2021-22, building on an unprecedented upfront guarantee of £8.2 billion in 2020-21 to support the Covid response; SR20 confirms several UK-wide programmes, such as for vaccines, green growth clusters, offshore wind capacity and digital infrastructure, which will benefit people and businesses in Scotland; SR20 also provides targeted support by reprofiling City and Growth Deals in Moray, Tay Cities, Borderlands and the Scottish Islands from 15 to 10 years to accelerate investment in local economic priorities.
