Commenting on the Government's Expenditure and Revenue Scotland figures released today, Scottish Liberal Democrat Leader Willie Rennie MSP said:

"The SNP have claimed all along that North Sea oil would be Scotland's silver bullet.

"But these figures reveal that even taking oil revenue into account, Scotland would still have a £9 billion deficit.

"The SNP must come clean on the cost and implications of independence so that we can all have a mature discussion about Scotland's future."
