The gap between the policies of the political parties in Scotland has narrowed, according to their manifestos for the single-tier council elections next month, reports The Scotsman (p4).

The paper says that policies concerning major services like education, housing and social work are much more similar than they used to be.

However the Tories imply criticism of social work budgets by describing them as 'massive'.

Labour, the SNP and the Liberal Democrats are all opposed to the Tories' plans for three new water authorities, while Labour and the SNP have plans to create shadow committees to monitor the activities of the new authorities.
