Sluggish economy grows just 0.5%


Commenting on this morning’s economic figures which show that the Scottish economy grew just 0.5% during the first quarter of 2019, Scottish Liberal Democrat economy spokesperson Katy Gordon said:

“We need to hear a frank explanation from the SNP as to why Scotland is slipping behind the rest of the UK. They have had 12 years to try and get the Scottish economy up to speed.

“The Scottish Government needs to boost productivity through investment in education and mental health for the good of everyone who lives and works here.”
