DEREK Mackay’s deputy, Kate Forbes, stepped into his shoes to deliver the Scottish Budget after he resigned hours earlier.

Ms Forbes outlined the plans which still need to win the support of at least one other party at Holyrood to get it passed.

She said the SNP’s proposals were a budget for public services and climate change.

Ms Forbes announced £1.8 billion for projects aimed at cutting emissions, funding for rail and bus services would rise by £286 million to £1.55 billion and more than £85 million for promoting walking and cycling

She also announced £21 million to fund the new Scottish Child Payment, a £10 a week grant aimed at helping poorer families, which is being brought in later this year.

She said: “The global climate emergency is at the centre of our Programme for Government and we have already put in place the most ambitious climate legislation and targets of any country. This Budget will help deliver on that wold-leading ambition.

The Finance Minister said there would be an above real-terms increase of £37 million to the police budget and an additional £6.5 million to support community justice to reduce re-offending.

She revealed a 3% pay rise for public sector workers earning up to £80,000.

Ms Forbes said there would be an additional £12.7 million for alcohol and drug services which she said was a near 60% increase.

However, Annemarie ward of Favor Scotland, campaigning for more recovery beds, said it was “woeful” and called on Public health Minister Joe Fitzpatrick to resign.

Of the budget she said: “In 283 pages this is it for the addiction and drug death crisis.

“The highest deaths in the world and this is the attention and the budget response.

“I’m disgusted at the lack of urgency and care.”

Anti-poverty campaigners said there was not enough to tackle child poverty.

John Dickie, director of the Child Poverty Action Group, welcomed the a £3.5 million increase to the Scottish Welfare Fund and the introduction of the Scottish Child Payment.

However, he said: “This budget so far represents a missed opportunity to go further and demonstrate that budget decisions across the board, including on housing, transport, tax and employment, are being driven by the Government’s own statutory child poverty targets.”

The Scottish Government said local authorities will receive total funding of £11.3 billion in 2020-21.

It stated the settlement provides councils with an increase in day to day revenue spending of £494 million, fully funds all Scottish Government commitments and provides an additional £100 million for social care, including a contribution of £25 million to ensure all care staff are paid the living wage.”

Glasgow City Council will receive £1.322bn.

Cosla however said the budget looks much better than the reality behind the figures.

Gail Macgregor, COSLA’s resources spokeswoman said:“On the face of it this looks like a good Budget for Local Government with a cash increase of £495million and whilst we acknowledge this money, the reality behind this figure unfortunately is quite different.

“What we are left with when you factor in the Scottish Government commitments of £590million - is a cut to Local Government core budgets of £95 million.

“This is £95 million in hard cash that will need to be taken out of front line services.”
