Is the Scottish economy too reliant on oil?

Scotland’s oil industry remains a strong component part of our successful economy, yet it is but one of many industries – including renewables, agriculture, fisheries and tourism which form the basis of the Scottish economy. The SNP disagree with the approach successive UK Governments have taken to North Sea oil revenue and advocate more responsible stewardship which ensures the value for posterity. Westminster’s mismanagement of the North Sea oil industry demonstrates why the Scottish Parliament needs greater economic powers – so we can ensure Scotland can reap the benefits of Scotland’s natural resources.
