Attitudes in England over public spending in Scotland 2000 to 2013 survey

This statistic shows the results of a survey designed to measure the attitudes in England towards Scotland’s share of public spending. The survey was conducted from 2000 to 2013. In 2013, when asked "would you say that compared with other parts of the UK, Scotland gets pretty much its fair share of government spending, more than its fair share, or less than its fair share of government spending?", just over a third (36 per cent) thought Scotland gets more than its “fair share”. About the same amount (37 per cent) think that it secures “pretty much its fair share”, though only one in twenty feels that Scotland gets less than its fair share. The proportion who think that Scotland gets more than its fair share is higher now than in the early years of devolution, when only a little under a quarter were of that opinion, but it is slightly lower than the figure of two in five or so that has hitherto prevailed since 2008.

Would you say that compared with other parts of the UK, Scotland gets...
