Davidson fears for Scotland’s reputation
The leader of the Scottish Conservatives has told an audience of business figures she fears Scotland is gaining a reputation as “one of the most costly places to set up a business in the UK”.
Speaking at the Federation of Small Businesses annual dinner in Glasgow last night, Ruth Davidson said Scotland needs competitive tax rates to grow the economy and boost public services.
Her comments follow the publication of a Scottish Government discussion paper which includes options to increase tax rates.
She said-scotland has to show it does not “sanction wealth creators - we support them”.
