Ask the Cabinet Secretary

The Finance and Constitution Committee invited members of the public to submit questions via social media to the Cabinet Secretary for Finance and Constitution in relation to the taxation elements of Draft Budget 2017-18. People submitting questions were encouraged to tweet their questions to @SP_FinCon using the hashtag #askthecabsec.

The submitted questions are available on the Committee's website.

Members of the Committee asked a number of the submitted questions when they took evidence from the Cabinet Secretary at the meeting on 16 January 2017. You can read the Official Report of the meeting here or watch the meeting on Parliament TV.

The Scottish Government has also provided written responses to those questions that weren't asked on the day. The responses can be accessed via the link below.
