Scottish Parliament: Council Tax and Pensioner Poverty (11 May 2006)

Sylvia Jackson: I am sorry, but I have a lot to get through. A local income tax would be more complex and expensive to collect than the council tax. Although the proposal might look attractive to pensioners, the local income tax form could be as complicated to fill in as self-assessment tax returns. Those issues have not been addressed at all. The Labour Party believes that the council tax can be redesigned...

Scottish Parliament: Civil Justice Reform (20 Apr 2006)

Sylvia Jackson: I agree. Moreover, an accurate picture of the legal system is not presented.

My constituents in Stirling will welcome that link, as will others. As the minister knows, I continue to have discussions with a group of visually impaired people in Stirling and Mary Dickson of First ScotRail about tactile...

Scottish Parliament: Play Strategy (15 Mar 2006)

Sylvia Jackson: The minister referred to local authority provision. I gather that, when I was not in the chamber, Lord James Douglas-Hamilton referred to cuts in Stirling Council's budget.
