Council Services Bear The Brunt

Torcuil Crichton's tweet highlights just how bad things are for Scotland's local council's after the SNP's 2022 spending review.

Council services and jobs face enormous cuts with zero growth in Scottish government grant funding, against a background of very high inflation.  

ScotGov spending on health and welfare benefits has increased significantly since 2020 and ministers intend to  protect these areas going forwards.

Interestingly, SNP ministers are not proposing to use the Scottish Parliament's tax raising powers to bridge the spending gap.
