Rennie: Budget fails to deliver on mental health, education and local government finance


Scottish Liberal Democrat leader Willie Rennie has today warned that today’s Scottish Government budget fails to deliver on mental health, education and local government finance.

Mr Rennie said:

“Our priority for this budget is to secure a cessation in the preparations for independence and greater investment in local councils, mental health and teachers pay.  It is a great disappointment that the SNP continue to put independence first.

“The Greens have accepted a budget that fails to scrap the council tax and delivers a cut of £50million for social care.

“This limp and underwhelming budget fails to deliver on mental health, education and local government finance.”
