CIPFA briefing: funding devolved government

CIPFA has developed a briefing document: Funding devolved government across the United Kingdom. The briefing note addresses the need for a new approach to distributing funding that would be linked with tax devolution. It examines the background to the Barnett Formula and draws upon international mechanisms for comparison. The brief concludes by urging a principles-based approach that should seek to address relative need as well as the promotion of equity.
