Commenting after today's debate on the Scottish budget Scottish Liberal Democrat leader Willie Rennie MSP said:

"Today the SNP missed a huge opportunity to make Scotland a more liberal and economically strong country. It's a missed opportunity to meet the challenges of Brexit, a sluggish economy and slipping educational performance. It's a missed opportunity to see a transformational investment in education, a step change in mental health services and essential support for our police service.

"Liberal Democrats held firm on our reasonable and principled positions. Instead of delivering a bold and green country the Green Party have simply helped the SNP deliver a grey and timorous budget."
