Rennie: Serious soul searching needed over Scot Gov census screw up

Speaking ahead of the closure of the Scottish census on 31st May, Willie Rennie MSP said:

"There will need to be some soul searching in the Scottish Government over how this was allowed to go so wrong.

"From the decision to detach the census from its counterpart elsewhere in the UK to the complexities of filling in the survey online, the Scottish Government has not covered itself in glory.

"This matters because the census helps to inform how public services are delivered for the next decade. The minister needs to set out what kind of review of the census process will be done and how the government will be filling in the blanks."
