SNP’s LIT plans under fire at Holyrood

The Scottish Government’s plans to replace council tax with a local income tax is under fire at Holyrood

Labour and the Tories used the first question time of the new parliamentary
session at Holirood following the introduction of the
Scottish
Government
’s plan to replace council tax with a 3p local income tax, to dub
it unworkable.

Acting Scottish Labour leader Cathy Jamieson led the attack, claiming the
plan would make Scotland the highest-taxed part of the UK, BBC News
reports.

Deputy First Minister Nicola Sturgeon, standing in for Alex Salmond, said the
plan had attracted massive support.

the proposal as the Liberal Democrats demands councils be given control over the
tax, instead of it being managed centrally.
