Commenting as Scottish Power announces that they are to create 1,500 jobs in Scotland as it upgrades its electricity network over the next 10 years, Scottish Liberal Democrat Energy spokesperson Liam McArthur MSP said:

"This latest announcement shows the job creation potential that exists in Scotland from the development of our renewables resources.

"Realising that full potential will require a broad and evolving range of skills. To ensure that the skills of our workforce keep pace with that demand, the Scottish Government and its agencies must work hand in glove with our schools, colleges and Universities to improve and broaden the skills base.

"The rewards for meeting this challenge successfully, as we are seeing today, could be significant."
