The Commission on Local Tax Reform considered ways of improving the system of local taxation in Scotland.  

One of the ways in which we did this was though a series of evidence panel sessions.    These panel sessions involved commission members and people or organisations coming together at ‘round table’ events to discuss the issues and share knowledge and perspectives.
