Scottish Economy

Election podcast #5 with special guest Alf Young

Our fifth election podcast looks at some of the key policy issues that have arisen in the campaign this week – with a brief discussion on key points within the manifestos, including tax, spend and social security, and some insights into what to look out for in the coming week. We were also joined by Alf Young, a columnist for the Times in Scotland, for his thoughts on the campaign so far.
