Scots to set taxes?

Date: 27 November 2014

A new Government-commissioned report has recommended Scotland be given control over its income tax rates and bands, throwing up the possibility of different company car taxation for employees north or south of the border.

The recommendation comes in the 'Smith Commission', which was set up by prime minister David Cameron in the wake of Scotland's decision to reject independence in October.

The ability to change speed limits is also included in the document, which was agreed between all the main political parties, while the Government's Motability scheme for disabled drivers will also need to be rearranged as Scotland.

The draft Scotland Bill is due to be published in January, and the bill will be included in the Queen's Speech next May.
