Speaking at an Economic and Social Research Council seminar in Westminster on the future of the UK and Scotland, the Deputy Director of the Institute for Fiscal Studies (IFS), Carl Emmerson, said opportunities would arise for an independent Scotland from the fact UK tax systems have much to be improved upon, and there are opportunities from higher spending such as defence spending being higher than most other small countries.

He also said that in recent years, a geographic share of North Sea oil revenues would have been enough to finance the higher public spending per head in Scotland.

End of the line for the PFI? | Paul Gosling [cached]

But Carl Emmerson, deputy director at the Institute for Fiscal Studies, explains that the Treasury is now very close to the sustainable investment borrowing ceiling, which would be breached if off-balance sheet schemes were now placed on-balance sheet. Of the total £53.4bn capital values of PFI schemes declared by the Treasury, some £29.1bn (54.5%) is currently off-balance sheet.

The likely approach by Chancellor Alistair Darling will be to raise the 40% borrowing ceiling, suggests Emmerson.
Consequently, predicts Emmerson, Darling will replace the sustainable investment rule with a new rule which has a much higher ceiling and encompasses other long-term debt - particularly liabilities of public sector pensions.
Ideally, says Emmerson, the new accounting rules would have no impact on the future of the PFI. 'What we would like to happen is that all PFI deals are done for economic efficiency reasons, because they are the most economic way or are the best way to deliver, so this would make no difference,' he says. 'In future no-one will be able to make allegations that a deal is done as an accounting trick.'

Commenting on speculation today that government ministers are considering a boost of up to £5 billion to planned capital spending, Carl Emmerson, Deputy Director of the IFS, said: "An extra £5 billion, if spent in one year, would be a large proportional increase in investment spending: Budget 2011 forecast around £30 billion of net investment both this year and next.
