This paper forms CentreForum’s submission to HM Treasury in advance of the 2014 Budget. The paper is in three parts. Part 1 sets out a series of changes to fiscal policy. The package represents a small overall tax cut aimed primarily at low and middle income earners. Part 2 explores options for reforming local government funding. It argues that a clear delineation needs to be drawn between local and national competencies. Local government should be solely responsible for raising the revenue to finance local competencies, and should be free to decide how and whether to deliver these. Part 3 outlines proposals for disposing of the government’s stake in the Royal Bank of Scotland.
