We will work harder than ever to deliver for all the people and communities of Scotland

The first 100 days of the re-elected SNP Government will see us working harder than ever to deliver for all the people and communities of Scotland.

I have already stated that my pledge to close the attainment gap in education – to ensure equal chances for all children, regardless of their background – will be the defining mission of this, the fifth session of the Scottish Parliament and the third term of an SNP Government.
