Speaking after Derek Mackay's appearance at the local government committee, Scottish Labour's Finance spokesperson James Kelly MSP said:

“Once again, the mask has slipped and SNP Finance Secretary Derek Mackay has been forced to admit councils face having to make yet more cuts. “Despite all the spin and bluster from the SNP, local lifeline services such as schools are facing cuts because of the decisions of Nicola Sturgeon’s government.

“That is unacceptable.

“Rather than passing on Tory austerity to Scotland, the SNP should use the powers of the Scottish Parliament to invest in our economy and society so we can deliver real change across the country.”
