Commenting as the UK Government unveils plans to give the Scottish Parliament more financial powers, Scottish Liberal Democrat Leader Willie Rennie MSP said:

"This is good news for Scotland. These new financial powers will give Scotland more flexibility for borrowing. This will boost Scotland financially and will act as a safety net to protect ourselves if times get tough.

"These are radical but not reckless changes. This is evidence of Liberal Democrats working constructively to get the best deal for Scotland in a strong United Kingdom, not like the mindless separatism we are seeing from the SNP."
