Plans 'do not protect NHS'

Labour's finance spokesman Iain Gray welcomed the move to make the replacement stamp duty tax more related to property costs, but he attacked Mr Swinney on the NHS.

"During the referendum campaign it emerged that the cabinet secretary's successive budgets... have failed to protect the NHS," he said.

"Health spending here has not kept up with increases, even compared to the Tory-run English NHS. Our NHS has had some £700m less than it should have had, had he kept his promises."
