SEAS warned in March 2019, SNP wriggling out of legislation to end tax relief for private schools?


SEAS was quoted in the national media about the SNP stepping back from ending charitable status of private schools. So while they get tax relief the private sector will also be getting further taxpayers’ support in this time of COVID crisis. In March 2019, at Scottish Labour ‘s national conference Bill Butler, SEAS convenor (see excerpt from Bill’s speech above), warned that SNP may well wriggle out of this scheme. We need to ensure this delay isn’t another attempt to kick the can down the road!
