31 January 2018


Commenting on the news that Dundee's new Regional Performance Centre for Sport may face an £800,000 tax bill, Jenny said;

“It seems that Dundee might have to find another £800,000 for the centre because Derek Mackay’s tax plans look like they will tax new sports centres.

“Clearly this is a big policy issue for sport and public health – how can the Government put a huge tax hike on new facilities?

“The SNP have left Dundee in a situation where they refused to give Dundee the national centre and are now going to put an £800,000 tax hike on its new sports facilities.

“This is unacceptable and I am calling on Shona Robison and Derek Mackay to stop this.”
