Meeting of the Parliament 03 April 2014 : Thursday, April 03, 2014
Malcolm Chisholm (Edinburgh Northern and Leith) (Lab) Sorry, Presiding Officer—I did not hear you.

Today it is no concessions on Trident. Yesterday the Cabinet Secretary for Finance, Employment and Sustainable Growth said that there would be no restrictions on the freedom of an independent Scotland to tax. Is it not the case that the Scottis...

Meeting of the Parliament 03 April 2014 : Thursday, April 03, 2014
Malcolm Chisholm First, it thinks that it would get a shared currency without any significant concessions; secondly—



Meeting of the Parliament 03 April 2014 : Thursday, April 03, 2014

Meeting of the Parliament 03 April 2014 : Thursday, April 03, 2014
Malcolm Chisholm Thirdly—[Interruption.]

Finance Committee 02 April 2014 : Wednesday, April 02, 2014
Malcolm Chisholm You said in your introduction that we would have a new and distinctively Scottish approach to tax avoidance, on which we have heard a lot of different views. We have been pulled in opposite directions by the Chartered Institute of Taxation and ICAS on the one hand and by the Scottish Trades Union Co...

Perhaps a concrete manifestation of that is the recent creation of a UK advisory panel to provide quasi-objectivity—I do not know whether that is the right term. It provides an exte...

Finance Committee 02 April 2014 : Wednesday, April 02, 2014
Malcolm Chisholm You are probably right, in that a lot of people come from that position but, moving on to my last topic, I think that it would still be right—



Finance Committee 02 April 2014 : Wednesday, April 02, 2014
Malcolm Chisholm That is what my question was going to be about. Some points have been raised about the appeal system. A couple of them were about the fact that—as I understand it—there will be some restriction on the right of appeal, although I am not entirely clear about the details. That point was made by the Fac...
