Responding to the latest unemployment figures, Scottish Liberal Democrat economy spokesperson Carolyn Caddick said:
“These latest figures are disappointing. The performance of the Scottish economy has been erratic. This is no time for complacency from the SNP. The brush with recession earlier this year should be in their mind.
“The Scottish economy faces challenges from Brexit, high inflation and skills shortages. The clear and positive route forward is a transformational investment in education and skills. Scottish Liberal Democrats will continue to champion this plan to establish a high-wage, high-skill economy.”
