Budget - again
This was John Swinney's 9th Scottish Budget - nine occasions on which he has balanced the books , stretched resources and sought to drive forward a progressive agenda focused on equity .
For most of those budgets he has been opposed not just by the Tories but by Labour, and so it was again today.
I was glad to speak in it, to set the record straight from my constituency point of view at least . My contribution can be found here: https://shar.es/1CoXSE
I have recorded such a voting outcome before , using my voting sheet like this, but I am glad to do so again for the last budget of this Parliamentary term.
