Backing for pricing Bill

NORTH East Liberal Democrat MSP Alison McInnes has called on the Scottish Government to back a unit pricing Bill which is making its way through Westminster.

The Price Marking Consumer Information Private Members’ Bill is being promoted by Lib Dem MP Jo Swinson and would make supermarkets use clear and simple price labels to help people save money.

Mrs McInnes has written to John Swinney, Scottish finance secretary asking the Scottish Government to show its support

She said: “Local residents have the right to know exactly what they are paying for so they can choose what is the best value for money.”
