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

"These disappointing figures will puncture the SNP Government's complacency on the performance of Scotland's economy.

"The Scottish Government should look again at Liberal Democrat plans to use the hundreds of millions of pounds of public resources locked in Scottish Water to boost employment through investment in energy efficiency, super-fast broadband, small businesses, early intervention and science, whilst keeping it firmly in public ownership.

"Reforming Scottish Water to unlock £1.5billion to invest in jobs should be the response from the Scottish Government to these figures."
