Motion S4M-13654: Further Austerity

25 Jun 2015

That the Parliament notes the recent report by The Fraser of Allander Institute, which it believes has warned that further austerity measures in the next UK budget could threaten economic recovery in Scotland; agrees with the view expressed by the institute when it urged the Chancellor to consider slowing down the pace of the UK Government’s austerity measures; believes that many people in Scotland do not want further austerity measures, and hopes that this is reflected in the next budget in July 2015.
