    The Smith commission on further devolution has concluded its talks with the five political parties represented in the Scottish Parliament. They have reached agreement on a package of additional powers, which is to be announced in Edinburgh on Thursday.

    The commission's recommendations are expected to include:

    • the full devolution of income tax rates and bands, with the personal allowance (the threshold above which tax is paid) continuing to be set by the UK government
    • assigning a proportion of the VAT revenues raised in Scotland to the Scottish budget
    • giving Holyrood control of air passenger duty and - eventually - the aggregates tax
    • devolving welfare measures including attendance allowance, carers' allowance and some cold weather payments
    • retaining UK control of all the benefits being merged into universal credit, while introducing some devolved flexibility over aspects such as the frequency of payments
    • devolving the work programme
    • putting Holyrood in charge of its own elections, which could allow MSPs to give 16 and 17 year olds a vote in the 2016 Scottish Parliament election
