Does the minister agree that a Government that takes more than nine months to set up a review of the council tax does not regard the matter as a high priority? Will he also tell me why the Executive has set up more than 40 consultations and reviews of policy since May last year, yet still fails to set up a review into the council tax? Is the Executive too busy misleading the Parliament about the Scottish service tax proposals to examine critically its own policy?
