SCOTTISH Tory leader Ruth Davidson will today use a speech in the Capital to urge the SNP government to “get back to the day job”.

Ms Davidson will say the Scottish Government needs to focus 100 per cent on using existing and new powers to boost the country’s prospects.

She will also unveil a set of new policy commitments designed to support Scotland’s economic growth, which she is urging the Scottish Government to adopt.

In her speech to activists, Ms Davidson will say: “Standing here – as we prepare to start a new parliamentary year – I believe Scotland now faces a choice. Either we can add to the turbulence and the instability – by piling fresh doubt over our future on top of that which already exists.

“Or we can now work to try and put this period of instability behind us so we can all focus on building a stronger and more stable country. It is an opportunity that is in our grasp. And I want to talk today about how vital it is that we choose to take it.

“To focus on all that has been neglected these last few years – a long-term vision for our country’s economic 
security.” She will add: “I want to see more ambition from the Scottish Government. The kind of ambition that will help Scottish businesses as they break into new markets, drive up productivity and get ahead of the curve when it comes to harnessing new technologies.”
