SNP CONFERENCE SETS OUT PROGRESSIVE POLICIES

 

Clydesdale MSP Aileen Campbell has today welcomed a series of policy announcements made by the First Minister Nicola Sturgeon at the SNP Spring Conference in Glasgow. There was a strong emphasis on policies for children and young people and also a commitment to promote rural superfast broadband across Scotland.

 

The First Minister confirmed that a re-elected SNP government will:


• Increase Maternity Grants for the birth of a first child; reintroduce payments for subsequent children; and introduce payments for children beginning nursery and starting school.
• Extend free school meals to all 2, 3 and 4 year olds in our nurseries.
• Invest an extra £750 million over the next Parliament, partly paid for by making the Council Tax fairer, to raise the attainment of the most disadvantaged young people.
• Protect NHS funding in every year of the next Parliament and invest an additional £50 million in cancer treatment.
• Extend superfast broadband to every community in Scotland.

 

Commenting, Aileen Campbell said:

 

“At the SNP Conference this weekend the First Minister set out a number of policies that I will be proud to take to the people of Clydesdale in the Scottish Parliament election in May.

 

“The SNP already has a record to be proud of: crime is at a 41 year low; Council Tax bills have been frozen for nine years; more school leavers are in work, education or training than ever before; the health budget has reached a record £13 billion; and we have fully mitigated the Bedroom Tax.

 

“The bold agenda set out by the First Minister will build on this record of achievement – to deliver a fairer, more prosperous and confident country.

 

“It is clear that the only way to secure this progressive vision for Scotland is to vote both votes SNP and re-elect a strong SNP government led by Nicola Sturgeon as First Minister.”
