Speaking ahead of the budget tomorrow, Scottish Liberal Democrat leader Willie Rennie MSP said:

"The Conservatives pursuit of a hard Brexit means this budget will be dominated by measures to battle the economic consequences of Brexit.

"Instead of delivering on the promise of £350 million a week for the NHS the Government has been forced to create a £60 billion war chest to battle Brexit.

"At a time when public services are under strain that should be the focus of the budget."
