The Secretary of State says that all this is part of defending the Union. Obviously his colleague Tavish Scott would share his view, but in his submissions to the Steel commission and then the Calman commission he suggested devolving

"income tax; corporation tax; fuel duty...tobacco and alcohol duties; betting and gaming duties; air passenger duty; insurance premium tax; climate change levy and landfill tax; inheritance tax; and stamp duties".

Surely the Secretary of State does not disagree with his own colleague in the Scottish Parliament, does he?
