Speaking ahead of the Holyrood vote tomorrow on scrapping national tests for P1 children, Scottish Liberal Democrat education spokesperson Tavish Scott MSP said:

"Are the First Minister and Deputy First Minister going to listen to teachers and parents or not?

"Teachers unequivocal message is that testing 5 year old girls and boys tells them nothing they do not already know.

"So when Parliament votes with teachers and parents to halt national tests for 5 year olds, the government must accept that view."
