Reform Scotland backs Green Party Bill and calls for tax devolution to local authorities
Support plan for carers after a bereavement tops the list of policy ideas
Reform Scotland, the independent, non partisan think tank, is backing Green MSP Andy Wightman’s Bill to strengthen the position of Scottish local government.
In its submission on the European Charter of Local Self-Government (Incorporation) (Scotland) Bill, to the Local Government and Communities Committee, the think tank has called for non-domestic rates and council tax powers to be handed fully to local authorities to retain, replace or revise as they see fit, in what it has called “real localism”. The submission can be read below.
