In response to the Fraser of Allander budget report published today, the leader of the Scottish Liberal Democrats Willie Rennie said:

"Fraser of Allander have nailed the problems facing the Scottish Government.

"Brexit is causing a fragile economy with rising inflation. This puts funding for public services at risk.

"The challenge to the Chancellor is to protect UK public services in his Budget in November.

"And, in Scotland, the SNP need to make up their mind where they stand on supporting services through taxation. They abstained in the vote last week. This is not good enough as a response.

"The Scottish Liberal Democrats offer a positive plan to invest in education to create a high skills and high wage economy for the long term."
