It looks likely that later today (weather permitting) the SNP and Liberal Democrats are likely to seal a deal that will smooth the passage of the reintroduced Scottish Budget.
The actual details of what has been agreed between Alex Salmond and Tavish Scott have not been disclosed just yet but it is rumoured that part of the deal may be that the Nats engage with the Calman Commission looking at future powers short of full independence so that not all of Scotland's eggs will be placed in one or another basket should a referendum on the issue come about.
Another issue that is likely to have cropped up in discussions in capital investment in roads, hospitals and schools and whether some form of Public Private Partnerships (PPP). It is an issue to which the SNP have been averse but they may be persuaded to be forthcoming to increase the £230m accelerated spending in this area. Some capital programmes have slowed as a result of the lack of private money because the replacement scheme the Scotland Futures Trust has yet to achieve anything.
It sounds like flesh has been added to the bones of the initial statement last week that all the Lib Dems were intending to add was to talk to Westminster about possible borrowing. It appears that there are constructive additions to help the Scottish economy that may be in the package.
