This is achieved by means of the Barnett Formula and supports the principles underlying inter-administration financial relations including accountability, autonomy, transparency, economic efficiency, stability and predictability, discipline and consent. More information on HM Treasury’s policy on funding the devolved administrations is set out in the Statement of Funding Policy<strong>. </strong></p> more like this
