Commenting on new research from Unison which shows the SNP government is failing to meet its workforce training targets, Scottish Labour's education spokesperson, Iain Gray MSP, said:

"This is the latest in a long line of warnings that the Scottish Government is not doing enough to implement this policy.

"We have heard from councils, Audit Scotland, nurseries and now the workforce that there is a high risk that there will not be sufficient staffing in place.

"Throughout this process the Minister has arrogantly told us that everything is going to plan, while repeatedly being told by all the stakeholders that it is not. Childcare expansion has the potential to deliver for young people, but the Government at the moment only stands to let them down.

"This is what happens when a policy is written to fit on an election leaflet and not to fit around the lives of Scotland’s families."
