Comment on the budget for the North East - Mike Rumbles MSP


Commenting on the Scottish Government’s budget for 2020/21, Scottish Liberal Democrat and North East MSP Mike Rumbles said:

 

“This is a hugely disappointing budget for the North East. It is clear that the Scottish Government has once again failed to give our councils the money they require to deliver desperately needed local services.

“Combined with years of financial mismanagement, including a botched ‘fixed price’ contract for the AWPR resulting in an overspend of £64 million, over £200 million wasted on ferries that no one wants and £40 million spent propping up loss-making Prestwick Airport, it is clear to me that this Scottish Government is financially incompetent.”
