MSPS warn air tax cuts are ‘reck­less’

The Scotsman - - News Digest -

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.
