Salmond says don’t withhold our money

First minister Salmond has warned UK ministers from holding back ‘Scotland’s money’

First Minister Alex Salmond has warned UK ministers there should be ‘no
attempt’ to hold back hundreds of millions of pounds of benefits if Scotland
scraps the council tax,
The
Press Association
reports.

His warning comes after the UK government decided against providing financial
assistance to the SNP administration’s plans to replace the council tax with a
local income tax.

The SNP wants to keep the £400m a year that Scotland receives in council tax
rebate from Westminster.

‘There should be no attempt by Westminster ministers to withhold Scotland’s
money,’ Salmond said.
