Andrew Bridgen highlights risks the Scottish Government takes in making Scotland the most highly taxed part of the UK

2nd March 2017
Andrew Bridgen highlights the risks to the country's competitiveness taken by the Scottish Government decision to make Scotland the most highly taxed part of the UK.

13. Does the Minister agree that the Scottish Government’s decision to make Scotland the most highly taxed part of the United Kingdom will reduce the country’s competitiveness and ultimately make Scotland a less attractive place in which to live, work or do business? [908910]

These are all very important points. It is for the Scottish Government to use the powers that have been devolved to them and to account to their people for using them, but there is no doubt that people look at the competitiveness of tax regimes, whether personal or business, and that those regimes are important in the key decisions that people make about competitiveness and other things.
