Commenting on the news that councils used £157million of their reserves on day-to-day spending, Scottish Labour’s local government spokesperson Alex Rowley said:

“Scotland’s councils are fast running out of money to provide lifeline local services after successive real terms cuts to their budgets by the SNP.

“These reserves are meant to be there for emergencies, now they are being used just to keep the lights on.

“Local government is in crisis but it is clear that SNP ministers simply do not care.

“It’s time for the government to listen to councils, listen to Labour and listen to the public by ending the austerity they have imposed on local government.”
