Commenting as the election campaign enters the final week, Scottish Liberal Democrat leader Tavish Scott said:

"Liberal Democrats are fighting a determined and positive election campaign.

"We are the only party standing up for local policing - the only main party against a single police force that Chief Constables warn could cost 3,000 police their jobs.

"We are the only party with radical new thinking that will free up £1.5 billion to spend growing our economy. We know that politicians don't create jobs, business does. That's why our plans will help businesses grow so that they can take on more people. We have long term solutions for the Scottish economy.

"We want to restore excellence to Scottish education. In the past Scottish education was the envy of the world: in the future it will be again.

"Scotland needs long term solutions, not short term political fixes. A Government for the whole country, not a minority party. A Scotland that looks outward and upwards and is not insular, throwing insults over Hadrian's Wall.

"Voters who share that ambition should vote Liberal Democrat twice on the 5th May."
