First Minister Humza Yousaf is slated to challenge the UK Government’s budget, asserting that Scotland has been “badly let down” while advocating for a more robust economic future. Yousaf will deliver his message at the London School of Economics, highlighting Scotland’s economic potential and the Scottish Government’s focus on investment attraction, enterprise, and determination.

Yousaf will underscore the need for additional support for struggling families, contrasting Scotland’s economic potential with similar European countries. However, he will also address the ramifications of the Spring Budget and the lingering effects of Brexit on the economy.

In anticipation of his speech, Yousaf criticized the UK Budget for prioritizing tax cuts over essential public services like the NHS. He emphasized the importance of providing greater support for public services and households grappling with the cost of living.

Yousaf’s address, titled ‘Business Prosperity Through Social Solidarity and Economic Dynamism,’ is scheduled for March 12. He aims to not only advocate for a brighter future for Scotland but also highlight the positive impact of an independent and economically stable Scotland on the wider UK.
