Yesterday I was invited to speak on Politics Scotland on the new fiscal framework for Scotland.
During the referendum, Scotland was promised more financial control and powers. As well as falling short of the Vow, the new powers proposed by the Tory Government would leave Scotland worse off. This directly conflicts with the guidelines set out by the Smith Commission which was set up to determine which powers Scotland should receive.
The Scottish Government will not accept plans which would inflict further Tory cuts on Scotland and our public services.
