A portrait of the King – is it the best use of our money?

In her column in the same issue of the paper, she writes of the plans for the Coronation, “To help mark the event, councils, courts, schools, police forces and many other public institutions will be able to apply for a free official portrait of His Majesty the King. This is funded by the Government to celebrate the King’s new reign.” (Looking forward to the Coronation, SNJ April 5th, 2023).

Does Ms Baillie know of a pot of Government money not paid for by “the taxpayer”, which they are drawing on for this act of largesse? If so, could it also be used to help those struggling in the cost of living crisis, after 13 years of Tory austerity and mismanagement?
