Party Conference

Many very welcome announcements in the First Minister’s speech this afternoon:

-The SNP Scottish Government will establish a publicly-owned, not-for-profit energy company to deliver low-cost renewable energy

– Extending free high quality childcare to 16 hours a week for all three and four year olds and vulnerable two year olds to 30 hours per week, saving working parents around £350 a month on the costs of childcare

– New support for children leaving care, by exempting care experienced young people from Council Tax

– Free sanitary products will be provided in schools, colleges and universities from the beginning of the next academic year.

– Protect our public services from Brexit, by ensuring we continue to benefit from the estimated 20,000 EU citizens who help deliver them.
