Where do the parties stand in Scotland?

Political parties in Scotland have begun their campaigns ahead of the election on 6 May.

To help you decide who you might vote for, use this policy guide to compare where the parties stand on the key issues.

This guide is a concise summary of the main policies being put forward by each party.

The policy areas featured in the guide were selected using polling data on what the public consider to be the most important issues facing the country.

While some issues such as health and education are the responsibility of the Scottish Parliament, others such as foreign policy and Brexit are decided at the UK parliament at Westminster. You can read more about how devolution works here.
