Commenting on the Budget announced today, Scottish Liberal Democrat leader Willie Rennie MSP said:
“Today the Chancellor presented a budget that showed the true cost of Brexit with his £60 billion war chest to battle Brexit. This is the emerging cost of the Conservatives’ hard Brexit.
“The additional funds for Scotland means the SNP have no more excuses. They can now invest in mental health and education as we had recommended for the Scottish budget only a few weeks ago. By investing in people we will boost our economy. Let’s hope the Scottish Government don’t let this opportunity pass by again.”
