Scottish Liberal Democrat economy spokesperson, Cllr Carolyn Caddick has today said that investing in education and skills is the key to reducing unemployment as new figures released today show that Scotland has slipped behind the rest of the UK on both unemployment and employment.
Commenting Ms Caddick said:
“These are the worst quarterly figures for a long time. Scotland has now slipped behind the rest of the UK on both unemployment and employment.
“The long term route out of this will be investment in education and skills. That is what Scottish Liberal Democrats will champion.”
