Responding to Labour's proposal of an 11p Scottish rate of income tax, Patrick Harvie MSP, Finance and Economy spokesperson for the Scottish Greens, said:Patrick Harvie_small

"The ability to adjust the Scottish rate of income tax to make the tax take progressive is extremely limited and what Labour have proposed would involve extra complexity and cost. The Scottish Greens will focus on the opportunity to adjust rates and bands, due to be devolved through the Scotland Bill, and on a shift in taxation away from income and towards wealth to tackle the appalling wealth gap in our society.

"We look forward to outlining our proposals in the coming weeks as we prepare to publish our election manifesto."
