Members' Business - Linda Fabiani MSP: Fighting for Tax Jobs, Fighting for Tax Justice

Wednesday 20 September 2017 4:00 PM


That the Parliament welcomes the Public and Commercial Services Union report, Fighting for Tax Jobs, Fighting for Tax Justice, which it believes is a comprehensive and considered response to what it believes is the UK Government’s rash and poorly consulted proposals, Building Our Future, and notes the view that these plans will seriously damage Scotland’s economy by undermining its capacity to collect taxes effectively, decimating and destroying a skilled and experienced workforce, overestimating the benefits and underestimating the costs of digitisation, failing to take account of the challenges posed by Brexit, neglecting the support needs of the most vulnerable in society, including poor, disabled and older people, and affecting disproportionately communities such as East Kilbride, which it believes will bear the heaviest job losses and knock-on effects for the local economy.
