Liberals show low levels of Educational spending in Scotland

Even the Liberal democrats have a spokesman who published figures showing how London has short-changed Scottish education, so much in fact they (Labour) have treated us Scots worse than Mrs Thatchers Tories.

Liberal Jim Wallace said "Our policy is one of investment in education. That is the vital policy. Itís not the policy of taxation, itís one of investment in education. Weíre very critical of Labour, who in spite of the rhetoric have actually under-funded Scotlandís schools in the first two years in office Ė some £300 million less than in the Toriesí final year."
