Ahead of the 18 September referendum, the Scottish Government has set out a broad plan for what it thinks could be achieved for jobs, if the country becomes independent of the UK.
A 30-page report A Jobs Plan for an Independent Scotland sets out how the Scottish Government would use powers available with independence to â€œcreate more, and better, job opportunities in Scotland.â€
The headline proposal is a 3% cut in corporation tax. Other measures are increasing employment rights for workers, raising minimum wage rates and creating an Employment Rights Authority to bring together employment-related matters in one body.
A range of tax powers would incentivise investment in training and development, while a new Scottish Innovation Agency would â€œdrive innovation growth and provide a fully aligned innovation eco-system.â€View the report
