Scottish Liberal Democrat leader Willie Rennie has today warned that today's Scottish Government budget fails to deliver on mental health, education and local government finance.

Mr Rennie said:

"Our priority for this budget is to secure a cessation in the preparations for independence and greater investment in local councils, mental health and teachers pay. It is a great disappointment that the SNP continue to put independence first.

"The Greens have accepted a budget that fails to scrap the council tax and delivers a cut of £50million for social care.

"This limp and underwhelming budget fails to deliver on mental health, education and local government finance."
