Commenting on the announcement from the First Minister of a post Brexit stimulus, the Leader of the Scottish Liberal Democrats, Willie Rennie said:

"Nicola Sturgeon is not planning to spend a single pound more on public services. She is cutting spending in one area to increase it elsewhere.

"This is not a post Brexit stimulus, it's just post holiday hogwash.

"The Scottish Liberal Democrat plan is to increase income tax by a modest penny on income tax to boost education. Supporting skills and education is the best way to prepare Scotland for the economic consequences of the referendum vote."
