Scottish Labour MSPs have delivered real change for Scotland over the last parliamentary year at Holyrood.

Throughout every policy area Scottish Labour MSPs have held the SNP government to account for their failures and put forward radical alternatives to ensure our country works for the many.

- Forced the SNP to scrap its planned tax cut for the aviation industry.

- Secured more ambitious climate change targets.

- Brought forward the ‘Mary Barbour’ Bill to cap rip-off rent rises.

- Successfully fought for the Income Supplement to be fast tracked.

- Led Parliament in voting to scrap Primary 1 standardised tests.

- Secured legal protections for iconic live music venues in the Planning Bill.

Scottish Labour leader Richard Leonard said:

“Scottish Labour MSPs are delivering real change for the people of Scotland.

“From the climate crisis to the housing crisis, it is Scottish Labour that are bringing forward radical solutions to ensure our country works for the many, not the few.

“We are achieving all of this from the opposition benches, just imagine what a radical Scottish Labour government could do in office.

“It is only Labour governments in Edinburgh and London that will deliver real changefor working people, ensuring Scotland and the UK work for the many, not the few.”
