Commenting on this morning’s evidence session on the workplace parking levy, Scottish Liberal Democrat transport spokesperson Mike Rumbles MSP said:
“The amendment says that the burden of the tax falls on the occupier of premises, but it can also be expanded by ministers at any time to apply to whoever they like.
“These proposals are clearly scribbled on the back of a parking ticket. No wonder even SNP committee members are far from impressed.
“I will be putting down an amendment to remove this power from Scottish ministers.”
