The EU Referendum
Our position on the
EU referendum debate is simple. This is your vote.
TaxpayerScotland takes no corporate view on how that vote should be cast.
Our aims, as always, are to urge the state to be transparent about the
way it spends our money, to constrain its spending and avoid further debt
and growing deficits. The outcomes we seek are lower tax rates, a much
simpler tax regime, and the jobs and growth that would generate.
We therefore aim to avoid any comment for one side or the other in this
We will, however, continue to comment on any specific wasteful or unnecessary
use of our money by Brussels through any of its programmes that affect
Scotland. And we will certainly be on the lookout for the use of any taxpayers'
money to support a particular point of view within the debate.
