Arthur Midwinter, a former adviser to Holyrood's finance committee, says he is ‘deeply disappointed' that the minister has signed off a budget manifesto for the election that was ‘clearly both under-costed and made promises that couldn't be delivered'. Midwinter, who is visiting professor at the Institute of Public Sector Accounting Research at Edinburgh University, adds: ‘Since becoming finance minister, he's had to revise that position by reducing the spending commitments by more than £1bn. ‘I'm also disappointed with his performance in producing what I regard as the most regressive budget since devolution, with its combination of tax cuts and reduced charges mainly for people who can afford to pay these.'
