Commenting on unemployment figures out today, Scottish Liberal Democrat leader Willie Rennie MSP said:

Willie Rennie MSPWillie Rennie MSP"The higher growth of unemployment in Scotland compared with the rest of the UK emphasises the need for Scottish and UK Governments to work in partnership.

"Joint action to promote the £1billion UK youth contract to create jobs and training opportunities through subsidised wages is essential.

"Extra funds to help reverse the cuts to Scotland's colleges will also help.
"But I hope the SNP finally accept that their Plan MacB was a failure. They should accept that the UK Government is right to spend what we can to stimulate the economy without borrowing to a level that is unaffordable."
