Responding to new analysis by the Fraser of Allander Institute into Scotland's budget blackhole, Scottish Liberal Democrat general election chair Alex Cole-Hamilton MSP said:
"The Scottish Government has been criticied by the Fraser of Allander Institute and the Auditor General for Scotland for a lack of detail on what they are going to do to tackle their billion pound budget blackhole.
"Scottish Liberal Democrats are clear that to protect the Scottish economy the most important thing to do is to abandon independence, stop Brexit, and use the "Remain bonus" that will come as a result to invest in public services and tackle inequality."
