Balance the Books : Tourist Tax

Introduce a tourist bedroom tax to increase revenues for Scottish councils.

Why is this important?

Every major city both in Europe and the rest of the world have a tax added to the cost of hotel bedrooms. This does not need to be a huge amount £1 per night per room would have raised approx £28 million pounds just charging the tax in our major cities. We provide free museums, free parks and botanical gardens ( In Edinburgh), free art galleries. This extra money would help clean our streets (making it more appealing for tourists) and take some pressure off other services

City of Edinburgh, and all other places in Scotland
