Regional tax and spending breakdown published
Data from the ONS illustrate how the English taxpayers subsidise the rest of the country. People in London, the South-East and the East of England all generate more in tax revenues than they receive in public spending, providing a £3,070 surplus per head. By contrast, spending exceeded tax revenues by £5,440 per head in Northern Ireland and £2,830 a head in Scotland.
