Jo Swinson has today delivered a major speech to the Scottish Liberal Democrat spring conference in Hamilton. You can read her speech here:
The Scottish Budget has passed its first parliamentary hurdle at Holyrood, as the Green Party and the nationalists voted together to shuffle it on its way.
Scottish Liberal Democrat MSPs opposed the budget because it fails to deliver for the people of Scotland.
In our budget discussions with the SNP, we set out clear priorities to help the Scottish economy by investing in people through education and mental health, with a fair settlement for teachers and local government.
Scottish Liberal Democrat leader Willie Rennie said:
“2018 was a chaotic and divisive year. We need to draw a line under it and use 2019 to get back on track.
