*UKHotViewsExtra* SNP and Plaid Cymru manifestos: tech implications

Manifesto coversPart 3 of TechMarketView's General Election 2024 UKHotViewsExtra manifesto coverage looks at the pledges of the Scottish National Party (SNP) and Plaid Cymru. 

The SNP and Plaid Cymru manifestos have many similarities, including the desire for independence, fairer funding, increased investment in public services, a more progressive tax system, and changes to the benefits system. There is an acceptance that without independence or further devolution, many of these ambitions will be restricted to demands on the UK Government. There is also a focus on the green economy and its role in supporting the transition from heavy industries. 

Where the two manifestos differ is in their focus on digital technology. The SNP manifesto contains little discussion of the topic, apart from a brief mention of AI; however, Plaid Cymru places a far greater focus on the role of digital technology, particularly connectivity improvements.
