2024 General Election Brief: Tax

This is the second of our series of topical General Election briefings – before we turn to the political parties’ manifestos and how they do and don’t address the challenges highlighted here. This time, we’re looking at tax: what’s happening already, whether it’s devolved or reserved, and what to look out for and ignore as a Scottish voter.

Part of Collection

The UK General Election on the 4th of July, 2024, follows a period of significant economic and societal challenges. In a series of webinars, briefings, podcasts, and articles, we analyse the party manifestos and communicate the implications of different parties' policy commitments for Scotland. This is supported by the Nuffield Foundation as part of their general election briefing series.
