Impact of COVID-19 on Public Finances and the Fiscal Framework

The RSE has submitted a response to an inquiry into the ‘Impact of COIVD-19 on Public Finances and the Fiscal Framework’ from the Scottish Parliament Finance and Constitution Committee.

The response analyses the potential short and medium term impacts from the pandemic and subsequent government interventions on public finances, and what government will need to consider in response. Additionally, the response examines the suitability of the fiscal framework in a time of crisis, before presenting concluding thoughts on what the RSE believe should be the key priorities and actions for government.
