Meeting of the Parliament 07 November 2018 [Draft] : 07 November 2018


Derek Mackay

For a majority of people, Scotland is the lowest-taxed part of the UK. We have delivered an income tax policy that is far more progressive, which is what I contin...



Meeting of the Parliament 07 November 2018 [Draft] : 07 November 2018


The Cabinet Secretary for Finance, Economy and Fair Work (Derek Mackay)

That is accurate reporting from the Resolution Foundation. Its analysis of the 2018 budget shows that the UK Government’s tax and benefit policies are strongly regressive. Looking at the ove...



Meeting of the Parliament 07 November 2018 [Draft] : 07 November 2018


Derek Mackay

Tom Mason should perhaps take a closer look at the whole package of tax cuts that the Tories are proposing and taking through Westminster. The richest in society—...

Meeting of the Parliament 07 November 2018 [Draft] : 07 November 2018


The Cabinet Secretary for Finance, Economy and Fair Work (Derek Mackay)

Following the UK budget, the Scottish Government’s resource block grant from the UK Government—the money that we are able to invest in day-to-day public services—...



Meeting of the Parliament 07 November 2018 [Draft] : 07 November 2018


Derek Mackay

Clearly, the United Kingdom Government budget did not signal the end of austerity. The cuts to welfare will still be felt, despite the announcements that the Prim...



Meeting of the Parliament 07 November 2018 [Draft] : 07 November 2018


The Cabinet Secretary for Finance, Economy and Fair Work (Derek Mackay)

We expect to spend more than £125 million in 2018-19 on welfare mitigation and measures to help protect those who are on low incomes.



Meeting of the Parliament 07 November 2018 [Draft] : 07 November 2018


Derek Mackay
