Commenting on the latest UK GDP figures, which have revealed that the UK economy is now at pre-crisis levels, Scottish Liberal Democrat leader Willie Rennie said:
"This must be a difficult day for the doom-mongers. The steady economic recovery continues thanks to a combination of the hard work and ingenuity of the country and the economic plan delivered by this government.
"When the Liberal Democrats formed the government four years ago we did so to provide a stable government and to deliver the economic recovery Britain required. There's more work to be done but without the Liberal Democrats in government the progress made would not have been possible."
