SNP Finance Secretary John Swinney today welcomed 200 business names all supporting the re-election of an SNP Government.
The endorsement, advertised in today’s Scotsman, showcases people from Scotland’s big business community with names including Jim McColl, Martin Gilbert, Brian Souter, Sir Tom Farmer and Audrey Baxter and many other medium and small-sized enterprises which have benefitted from the SNP’s small business bonus over the last four years.
The 200 business people have attached their names to the following statement:
“Alex Salmond and his team have been good for Scotland. That is why we support the re-election of Alex Salmond as First Minister on 5 May.”
SNP Finance Secretary John Swinney said:
“This is hugely significant backing from Scotland’s business community for the re-election of an SNP Government.
“From captains of industry to the small and medium sized firms that have benefited from the SNP’s small business bonus, the message from the wealth and job-creators of Scotland is clear – only the re-election of an SNP Government led by Alex Salmond will keep the country on the path to sustained economic recovery and prosperity.
“Only the SNP has a positive vision for jobs, fairness and opportunity, and only by giving both votes to the SNP can people ensure the re-election of Alex Salmond and an SNP Government.”
