In his latest article for The Scotsman, David Alexander reflects on some of the proposed policies that were put forward during the Scottish Trade Union Congress’ annual conference this week and voices his concern about the possible impact on the housing market and investment in Scotland. 

David highlighted, “…there is an assumption by the STUC that if you simply charge more taxes, you gain more revenue. The reality is that there would be a flight from Scotland of anyone with assets, of entrepreneurs, of older people who have built up value through decades of saving and homeowning, and of families who would be rightly fearful that they would sacrifice their children’s inheritance to government policy.”
