  • Investing in communities to support growth

    The economy

    Despite the worst recession in 30 years we have managed to steer Scotland on the road to recovery. By reducing bureaucracy we have saved over £100M that we have reinvested to create more jobs for the Scottish workforce. And we've frozen the council tax for 8 years in a row protecting Scottish families.

  • More police means lowest crime rate for 37 years

    Justice

    We have worked hard to provide a further 1000 police officers in Scotland which we are proud to say has had dramatic results with crime levels the lowest they have been for over 37 years. We know how important these extra officers are and despite economic pressures we will ensure these officers are kept on the job.

  • 526 new schools built or refurbished

    Education

    Over the past 7 years in Government we've focused on providing every child with the right to access free education.

  • Turning environmental concerns into ambition

    The environment

    As a government we have championed a number of renewable energy initiatives. Take for example the North Sea Super grid. The grid allows Scotland to supply Europe with renewable energy generated by the abundant wind and wave power available just off the coast of Scotland in the North Sea. It is estimated that this initiative alone will lead to 1000s of rural jobs.
