I asked the Secretary of State if he would release the detail of the negotiations on the financial deal that sits alongside the devolution of powers in the Scotland Bill. •
This “fiscal framework” is being negotiated in secret so there is no way of anyone knowing if the deal is good, bad or indifferent to Scotland. This allows the Scottish Government to cry foul on something nobody has seen but them and the UK Government. •We need this to be transparent in the spirit of open and honest Government.
