The Labour Party wants people to back its knife crime policy
Labour has taken to the streets to ask the public to back its plans to give knife carriers six-month jail terms.
Hitting the UK election campaign trail, the party's Scottish leader Iain Gray attacked the SNP and Liberal Democrats for blocking the move.
Labour said knife crime - an issue devolved to the Holyrood parliament - was a distinct problem in Scotland.
Mr Gray and a group of Labour MSPs asked shoppers at the Glasgow Fort Shopping Park to back the proposals.
The Scottish Labour leader claimed knife murders in Scotland were more than double the rate of the rest of the UK and cost the NHS more than £500m last year.
Mr Gray, who was campaigning with Glasgow East candidate Margaret Curran, said: "Scotland has had enough of knife crime.
"Scots want the kind of tough action proposed by Labour and it's time for the SNP and Lib Dems to back Labour.
"It's time that politicians from other parties woke up and looked at what is happening out on the streets of Scotland and realised that continuing to do nothing is no longer an option."
