Commenting as the National Union of Students Scotland warns that colleges are not getting enough money to support students, Scottish Liberal Democrat leader Willie Rennie MSP said:

Willie Rennie MSPWillie Rennie MSP"Scottish Liberal Democrats have repeatedly called on the Scottish Government to use the unexpected consequentials they received from the UK Government to fill the college funding gap.
