S5W-14651: Bill Bowman (North East Scotland)

Scottish Conservative and Unionist Party

Date lodged: 14 February 2018

To ask the Scottish Government what consideration it took of the impact on household incomes when setting the cap on council tax increases at 3%.

Answered by: Derek Mackay 27 February 2018

As I set out in in my reply to S5W-14067 on 6 February 2018, the Scottish Government has capped locally determined increases to council tax in order to protect household incomes whilst providing local authorities the discretion to raise additional funding to support public services.
