Joint Exchequer Committee Communique
Joint communique published following a Joint Exchequer Committee between Scottish and UK Governments.
The Rt Hon Greg Hands MP, Chief Secretary to the Treasury and John Swinney, Deputy First Minister and Cabinet Secretary for Finance, Constitution and Economy met in London recently. They had a useful further discussion on Scotland's fiscal framework.
The discussion made progress in a number of areas. The two governments have not yet been able to reach an overall agreement. They explored each other's positions and confirmed their shared interest in reaching agreement.
Ministers asked officials to do further work, and are committed to updating the Scottish and UK Parliaments shortly.
