Scottish tax, benefits and public spending

What's happened and what do the parties propose?

Monday 26 April 2021 10:00am-11:15am
Online Event

Join us for a live webinar, in partnership with the Institute for Fiscal Studies.

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.

At the webinar, we will present the main findings of our analysis ahead of the elections in two presentations:

  1. the trends and choices made in recent years
  2. what the biggest parties propose for tax, benefits and major areas of public spending.

Following the presentations will be time for questions. The video and slides will also be available after the webinar has concluded.

This event will be free to watch online. Information on attending the event can be found on the Institute for Fiscal Studies website.
