MSPS warn air tax cuts are ‘reckless’
Opposition parties have stepped up their criticism of Scottish Government plans to slash air tax, branding the move as “reckless” and a tax cut for the wealthy.
MSPS are expected to vote through the Air Departure Tax (Scotland) Bill at Holyrood later today.
If passed, ADT will come into force from April 2018, replacing air passenger duty in Scotland.
The SNP administration wants to cut it in half by the end of this parliamentary term and eventually scrap it.
