Poverty and Inequality Commission comment on the Scottish Government Budget 2024 to 2025

Commenting on the Scottish Government’s 2024-25 Budget, the Poverty and Inequality Commission said:

“The Commission will consider the detail of the Budget and what it means for the Scottish Government’s ability to develop a credible path to meet the statutory 2030 child poverty targets. The Commission recognises that the introduction of the new advanced rate income tax band starting at £75,000 will raise some much needed revenue. This has a part to play, but in order to fund the kind of policies that will be needed to meet the Scottish Government’s ambitions on reducing poverty, more fundamental reform of tax in Scotland is needed. The Commission has outlined some recommendations on what form this should take in its recent report on taxation.
