answer text <p>As part of the Scotland Act 2012 the Government agreed that the Scottish Government would be able to borrow up to a limit of £2.2 billion for capital investment. The Scottish Government is able to borrow for this purpose by any means, including from the Government, private markets, or the issuing of bonds. The current Scotland Bill will be underpinned by a new fiscal framework, allowing the new powers in the Bill to be used effectively. Ministers have committed to agreeing the framework in the autumn and a final agreement will be published in due course.</p><p> </p> more like this
