Scottish tax, benefits and public spending – what’s happened and what do the parties propose?


This event, hosted by UK think tank Institute for Fiscal Studies will present a range of Scottish Election Briefing Notes on tax, benefits and public spending.

This year, for the first time and co-funded by the Scottish Policy Foundation, the Institute for Fiscal Studies is publishing a range of Scottish Election Briefing Notes on tax, benefits and public spending, and the parties’ plans for the coming parliamentary term. Fiscal devolution and the resulting growing differences in policies compared to the rest of the UK, and the starkly different visions of Scotland’s future set out by the different parties, mean independent and impartial analysis is more important than ever before.

Join us for our live webinar, in partnership with the University of Glasgow, where we will present the main findings of our analysis ahead of the elections in two presentations: the first, on the trends and choices made in recent years; and the second looking at what the biggest parties’ propose for tax, benefits and major areas of public spending.

Following the presentations, there will be plenty of time for questions, and the video and slides will be available after the webinar has concluded.
