Scottish tax, benefits and public spending - what's happened and what do the parties propose?

Presentation

This year, for the first time and co-funded by the Scottish Policy Foundation, the Institute for Fiscal Studies published a range of Scottish Election Briefing Notes on tax, benefits and public spending, and the parties' plans for the coming parliamentary term. In partnership with the University of Glasgow, we presented the main findings of our analysis ahead of the elections in a live webinar covering two topics: 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.
