Responding to reports that show the SNP spent £90,830 on the recent EU referendum, Scottish Liberal Democrat leader Willie Rennie MSP said:
“That the SNP would spend more on a parliamentary by-election that their national referendum reveals the low priority that they gave the referendum. They hardly lifted a finger during the referendum.
“The SNP can redeem their lacklustre EU campaign by backing our fight to keep the UK within the EU. With leading politicians agreeing with us we have momentum to put an end to a damaging Brexit.
“Brexit has created a wave of uncertainty and independence would only compound that uncertainty. The best chance that Scotland has staying within the EU is if the UK stays and I urge the First Minister to join us.”
