Scotland can be a fairer,more prosperous nation.
Scotland more than pays her way in the UK. We get 9.3% of UK spending, but contribute 9.6% of UK
taxes. We are in a stronger financial position than the rest of the UK, to the tune of £510 per person last
year - that’s over £1000 for each Scottish household. As an independent country, this money would
stay in Scotland.
4. Scotland already pays for all the government services we need as an independent country - we don’t
have to start from scratch. However, the money will be spent in Scotland, rather than London, creating
thousands of Scottish jobs.
