Report highlights Scottish Government's impact on limiting UK cuts
A REPORT has highlighted how the Scottish Government is limiting the effects of Tory policy on household income. The Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) examined the impact of combined changes to tax, social security and local authority services between 2010 and 2022. Its report estimates household income in Scotland will fall by 8.5% for the country’s poorest families, 8% for larger families and 7.8% for female lone parent households. However, the projected drop in total household income in Scotland between 2011 and 2022 will be £200 compared to £1450 in England and £470 in Wales, with decisions by the Scottish Government mitigating the impact of some UK Government cuts.
