Commenting after this afternoons debate in the Scottish Parliament on the SNP's budget, Scottish Liberal Democrat leader Willie Rennie MSP said:

"Today's vote should act as a clear warning that there is no majority for the SNP's budget. Next week the Scottish Government plans to bring the budget officially to Parliament and unless we see serious negotiations we will see no consensus develop.

"Liberal Democrats have been engaged in serious discussions and will continue to do so. However, if the SNP fail to deliver a significant compromise on their budget then we are on the path towards a snap election which would not be to the benefit of the people of Scotland."
