The profile of this spend is set out in the table below. These numbers have been taken from Departmental accounts and exclude £0.6bn incurred by HS2 Ltd to date on construction VAT.</p><p> </p><table><tbody><tr><td><p> </p></td><td><p>Total spend on HS2 excluding construction VAT (£m)</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2009-10</p></td><td><p>9.5</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2010-11</p></td><td><p>14.6</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2011-12</p></td><td><p>34.2</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2012-13</p></td><td><p>182.8</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2013-14</p></td><td><p>207.9</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2014-15</p></td><td><p>185.2</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2015-16</p></td><td><p>348.9</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2016-17</p></td><td><p>1,466.5</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2017-18</p></td><td><p>2,767.2</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2018-19</p></td><td><p>2,191.4</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Total</p></td><td><p>7,408.2</p></td></tr></tbody></table><p> </p><p>As set out in HM Treasury’s Statement of Funding Policy, the Barnett formula is generally applied at departmental level at Spending Reviews/Rounds and at programme level at fiscal events. Since 2010, HS2 has received all its funding through the Department for Transport’s settlements at Spending Reviews/Rounds where Barnett has been applied at departmental level. The spending on HS2 is not therefore associated with specific Barnett consequentials.</p><p> </p><p>HM Treasury’s Spending Review/Round documents set out the block grant funding for the Scottish Government. Documents relating to SR10, SR13, SR15 and SR19 can be found on the gov.uk website.</p><p> </p><p>Following UK Government decisions at Spending Round 2019, the Scottish Government benefitted from an increase of over £1.2bn in the Barnett-based block grant, which will increase to £34.4bn in 2020-21.</p>

star this property answer text <p>Valuations of the public service pension schemes are carried out every four years. The valuations set employer contribution rates to ensure the full costs of pensions are recognised and met by employers at the point scheme liabilities arise. The last valuations of the schemes considered the position as at 31 March 2016 and were completed earlier this year. Employer contribution rates have been set and came into effect on 1 April 2019. On 19 January the then Chief Secretary to the Treasury made a written statement (HCWS1286) announcing a pause to the cost control element of the valuations. The pause was necessary following a court ruling that an element of the reforms made to schemes in 2015 gave rise to unlawful discrimination. The matter has been remitted to the Employment Tribunal to determine how the discrimination is to be remedied. The Government has confirmed that it will take steps to remedy the discrimination in all public service pension schemes. Until a remedy is agreed it is not possible to assess the value of the public service pension schemes with any certainty at this time.</p><p> </p>
