Willie RennieWillie RennieCommenting on figures published today which showed GDP increased by 0.6% in Q3 last year, Scottish Liberal Democrat leader Willie Rennie MSP said:

"The growth figures for Scotland are welcome, even if they are still behind the rest of the UK.

"The message to the Scottish Government is that it cannot afford to dither any further on getting capital investment projects up and running. They fell short by £300m this year with their Futures Trust and have declined to start identifying projects in 2014 to use the extra capital resources provided by the UK Government."
