Head of CIPFA Scotland Don Peebles commented:
“The revised budget is a direct consequence of minority government, something that Scotland’s public services have not experienced for ten years.
“The recent political volatility at parliamentary and government level threatens the longer-term fiscal stability on which our public services rely. Therefore it is welcome news that the finance committee’s direction is now to budget over a longer time frame.”
