Speaking in response to reports that the Education Secretary John Swinney will issue a set of priorities for SNP councillors, the education spokesperson for the Scottish Liberal Democrats Tavish Scott MSP said:

"The message is clear that if you vote SNP in the local elections you get centralised SNP national policy. That means when SNP Ministers say jump their councillors will just ask Nicola how high?

"The SNP do not understand that local people want local councillors who will fight for local schools not impose national policy and education cuts.

"Only Lib Dem councillors will make the investment in education, for every pupil and allow teachers to get on with the job."
