Scot Lib Dems: GDP stats call for investment in productivity

Commenting on new figures showing that the Scottish economy has grown by just 1.3% in the past year, Scottish Liberal Democrat economy spokesperson Carolyn Caddick said:

"Derek MacKay is getting rather overexcited over growth of just 1.3% in a year, while Scotland's productivity continues to lag behind.

"What the Scottish economy needs is a transformative investment in the services that allow everyone to make the most of their talents, like education and mental health. 

"That would do far more to build a highly skilled, high wage society than a Finance Minister who leaves millions of pounds sat in government bank accounts waiting to be spent on another independence campaign."
