Scottish spending review to set budget for next three years

The Scottish government's Spending Review will set the budget for the next three years, with the promise of a programme of reform and investment.

Despite the economic challenges faced by Holyrood, Finance Secretary John Swinney said he was "determined to deliver key policies".

The SNP has been urged to consider dropping its plan to freeze council tax for five years, amid claims the policy is unaffordable.
