Scottish Liberal Democrat leader Willie Rennie has said that the narrow brush with recession shows how much work the SNP has to do to build a strong, long term Scottish economy.
Willie Rennie said:
“Scotland has had a brush with recession. The big picture is of an erratic and patchy economy. One quarter down followed by one quarter up is clear evidence.
“The long term route out of this is significant investment in education and skills. Scottish Liberal Democrats will continue to champion this. It is the way to establish a high-wage, high-skill economy.”
