Fraser of Allander publishes Draft report on Local Government funding


Today the Fraser of Allander Institute has published a draft interim report – commissioned by the Scottish Local Government Partnership Group – examining the fiscal outlook for local government in Scotland.

The aim of this independent interim report is to shed light on some of the key issues underpinning the debate on local government finance.

Today’s report is a factual summary of these issues and we welcome comments and feedback.    

The FAI is committed to informing and encouraging public debate through the provision of the highest quality analytical advice and analysis. We therefore are happy to respond to requests for factual advice and analysis.

The FAI does not have (and will not take) a position on the specific policy objectives of the report or how it is interpreted.
