Fiona Hyslop (SNP) said: “With such a stark difference in council tax bills between those in West Lothian and those in England and Wales, it is clear that the Scottish Government is doing everything it can, with limited powers and resources, to ensure that as much money as possible stays in the pockets of local families.”
