Scotland's Economy

Budget for economic recovery

February 8, 2012 by No Comments | Category Economy

I confirmed today that additional capital spending of £382 million for 2012 -2015, supporting around 5,000 jobs, has been allocated to support Scotland’s economic growth.

This is a Budget that boosts public sector capital investment, takes direct action to tackle unemployment, in particular youth unemployment and enhances economic security across the Scottish economy. I have listened to views from across Scotland and this is a budget for growth that puts the interests of our economy, our public services and the people of Scotland first.

I recorded a video message earlier today, which sets out how this Budget supports economic recovery.
