Update for the week

Over recent months, Covid-19 and our response to it have understandably been at the forefront of everyone’s mind. However, the Scottish Parliament and the Scottish Government are continuing to take steps, across a whole range of areas, to improve the lives of people across the country.

Rutherglen MSP Clare Haughey has urged the BBC to row back on their decision to stop broadcasting the First Minister’s Covid-19 briefings. The BBC announced earlier this month that it was no longer going to televise the press conferences and, instead, show them online and only occasionally on television.
