SNP Leader Nicola Sturgeon has today (Monday) published her tax returns for the last six years.
The documents, published on the SNP website, show Sturgeon has only one source of income – her salary as First Minister.
While she is taxed on her full salary, she receives only the 2008/09 value.
This means she donates around 20% of her salary entitlement back to the public purse.
Nicola Sturgeon said:
“I previously committed to being open and transparent to the people of Scotland about my own earnings.
“Today’s publication makes good on that commitment.
“These documents show clearly that my sole source of income is my job as First Minister – the office which I have the immense privilege of holding.
“I hope other party leaders – including the Prime Minister – will follow suit in an effort to promote transparency in public office.”
