Scottish Parliament: Transport (28 Mar 2002)

Keith Harding: As a Scottish Conservative, I am proud to be part of the only party in Scotland that understands and trusts business. We realise that it is individuals and businesses, not politicians, who create a successful economy and a prosperous society. I contrast our approach with the behaviour of the Local Government Committee, which has exposed the long-term plans of the three left-of-centre parties...

Scottish Parliament: Transport (28 Mar 2002)

Keith Harding: Not at the moment. Even when the Executive seemed to heed business calls for it to honour its commitment to reject any such proposal, Aberdeen Central Labour MP Frank Doran let the cat out of the bag by backing calls for Aberdeen and other cities to get back the right to fix, collect and spend business rates.

Scots firms already pay 9 per cent more than their English counterparts. That...

Scottish Parliament: Transport (28 Mar 2002)

Keith Harding: The SNP says that it wants to ease the burden on Scottish business, but would let our councils milk them with much higher business rates. Where is the consistency there? Even the Executive's sop of the rate relief scheme for small businesses is no help, as it is a typical bureaucrat's reaction to a problem. It is extremely unfair on medium-to-large businesses and sends out entirely the wrong...
