Row over rail £3.6bn funds
SCOTLAND’S railways will receive a £3.6 billion boost in future years via the Barnett funding formula.
UK ministers said the figure is an increase of £600 million on the previous period.
Holyrood is also being given greater control over how its rail is funded so that it can choose how best to use the money to improve the reliability of services for passengers, fund upgrades and invest in faster trains.
Transport Minister Humza Yousaf said the money was £600m short and would do “serious damage” to the railways.
