New figures released today show that since Jack McConnell became First Minister hospitality expenditure, the Booze Budget, has doubled in the First Minister’s Office.

Stewart Stevenson MSP said:

“Jack McConnell really should start trying to set a better example. Since he took over from Henry McLeish the booze bill in his office has more than doubled. Jack is now spending nearly £1000 more each working week than Mr McLeish did on hospitality – and that’s completely over the top.

“Earlier this year Jack McConnell got it completely wrong when he told a group of school children that it was okay to get drunk once in a while. Now he has let his own hospitality bill get out of control. Jack should stop ordering the doubles and get down to work cutting council tax bills.”
