From the First Minister today:
In terms of the period since 2013-14, local authority revenue funding is up by £2.2 billion – that is 22.9% higher in cash terms than it was in 2013-14. Compared to where Labour is in government in Wales, that 22.9% increase in Scotland is 7.3% in Wales.
In Glasgow, the SNP administration has had to pick up the pieces of the equal pay scandal that Labour presided over. Labour robbed women across Glasgow of money that was rightfully theirs – I’m proud that an SNP administration paid them that money back.
I think it speaks volumes that Labour, after five years in parts of the country working hand in glove with the Tories in council administrations, they’re in a scrap for second place with the Tories. That’s the summit of their ambition.More at: https://twitter.com/theSNP/status/1521853140127076354
