SNP to expose Londons theft of EU money for Scotland

SNP leader Alex Salmond MSP said: "The political demise of Alun Michael in Wales shows just how powerful a campaign on European Structural funding can be. Since 1993 the UK's failure to match-fund EU money has cost Scotland some 730m or 150 for every man woman and child. "
"In Wales, the Lib Dems and Tories accepted Plaid Cymru's analysis of European funding which threw the Labour administration into chaos and disarray. Exactly the same applies in Scotland."
