It has been revealed 28 Scottish Labour MPs voted with the UK government tonight for £75billion of cuts and tax rises.

 

Commenting, SNP Treasury spokesperson Stewart Hosie MP said:

 

“Labour have shown their true colours in siding with the Tories, and it shows now even more clearly that only by voting SNP can Westminster’s obsession with imposing austerity cuts – that just don’t work – be changed

 

“George Osborne is committed to continued austerity which will hit Scottish public services- and tonight he has been backed by Scottish Labour.

 

“The Scottish Labour MPs who voted tonight with the Tories represent some of the areas which have been hardest hit by government austerity measures, and it will be ordinary, hard-working people in their constituencies who will continue to suffer.

 

The SNP in government has a strong record on protecting our public services and supporting public sector workers – including the recent funding announced for NHS boards across the country.

But the impact of Westminster’s austerity agenda is continuing to be felt – and with more cuts being passed down the line , the strain on our vital public services can only increase.
