Scottish tax changes 'will be in 2015 Tory manifesto'

Changes to Scotland's tax system to give Holyrood more power will be part of the Conservative general election manifesto in 2015, the party's Scottish leader said today.

Speaking at the launch of the Strathclyde report on extending devolution, Ruth Davidson said: "I have spoken directly to the Prime Minister and the Chancellor of the Exchequer and there is political will for this to happen.

"If we win the 2015 general election, or are the largest party, these are the proposals that we are taking to the House of Commons. This is going in our 2015 manifesto."
