Stevenson Launches SNP Achievments Leaflet In St Combs

SNP candidate for Banffshire & Buchan Coast Stewart Stevenson launched his party’s latest leaflet in St Combs this week.

The leaflet, which has so far been delivered to over 12,000 homes in the constituency, highlights key achievements of the SNP Scottish Government over the past four years including:
  • A £300 saving for families: the average saving from the Council Tax freeze
  • Prescription charges abolished
  • 1000 more police on our streets and crime at a 32-year low
  • Free Higher Education restored
  • Jobs protected with massive cuts in small business rates
Commenting, Stewart Stevenson said:

“A range of policies came into effect last week making Scotland a fairer place. Prescription charges have been abolished, the living wage introduced for NHS employees and the free bus pass extended to injured veterans.

“April also sees the start of the fourth year of the Council Tax freeze, and it marks another year of the Small Business Bonus - a measure that has ensured a fair deal for the small businesses that form the heart of local economies.

“The SNP in Government has also delivered free student education; grants for 50,000 part-time students; free school meals for 40,000 more children; 25% more nursery hours for 100,000 3 and 4 year olds, and of course, 330 new or refurbished schools.

“In addition, the SNP has re-instated council house building and is committed to funding a further 5,000 council homes over the next four years.

“Over the last four years a record 17,000 affordable houses have been constructed across Scotland. That is more than in any term of Parliament and while there are challenges ahead the SNP is determined to continue our support for affordable housing in Scotland.

“The record of the SNP in Government is one of delivering a fairer society. That is work we are seeking to build on in the next term of the Parliament."
