Scottish Labour would raise tax for 'top earners' to pay for education plan

Scotland's Labour leader Kezia Dugdale said her party would raise taxes for higher earners to pay for improvements to education.

She also told her party conference in Perth that a Labour government at Holyrood would reverse tax credit changes affecting working families.

Ms Dugdale insisted "ordinary" tax payers need not pay more for her plans.

She said her education proposals would be paid for by asking those "very top earners" to pay "a bit more tax".

Makes sense for SNP to do exactly that since they wanted 50% tax anyway, start packing up ....
