PUPILS from Buckhaven High School are debating the merits of increasing inheritance tax in the opening rounds of the Law Society of Scotland’s debating tournament.

They have joined schools from across Scotland to take part in The Donald Dewar Memorial Debating Tournament.

It will see 128 teams from schools pit their wits and powers of persuasion against each other when they debate the motion ‘this House would introduce a 100% inheritance tax’ in the first round heats of the competition.

Now in its 13th year, the Donald Dewar Memorial Debating Tournament is the biggest school debating tournament in Scotland and its aim is to gives young people a chance to consider issues relating to them and a voice to express their views.
