Commission calls for Welsh government income tax powers

The Welsh government should have the power to vary income tax by 2020, an influential report on the future of devolution has said.

The Silk Commission says a referendum should be held on whether Welsh ministers ought to have new powers over income tax rates.

Control over other smaller taxes should also be devolved, it says.

The changes would make the Welsh government responsible for raising around a quarter of its own budget.
