Responding to the announcement from the Scottish Conservatives that they will be calling for the scrapping of Air Passenger Duty, Scottish Liberal Democrat leader Willie Rennie MSP said:
“This is the latest u-turn from the Scottish Conservatives as they abandon the centre ground that they promised to voters and move themselves rightwards.
“They have broken their promise to oppose the SNP strongly.
“Last week they abandoned support for business to be part of the EU single market.
“Now they have right-turned again. They are walking away from the environment. “
