Disappointing but not surprising given the people the SNP rely on for support. I would have thought a sensible compromise could have been found thought, such as freezing the APD rate in Scotland for X years to mititage against any UK wide increases.

I wonder what it means for PIK as it seems a bit hypocritical to support one bit of the aviation industry and still insist there is a climate emergency or whatever this week's buzzword is .
