Jackie Baillie, Scottish Labour’s deputy leader, has said Labour MSPs will read today’s report before deciding how they will vote in the proposed no confidence debate, the BBC’s Andrew Kerr reports.
I should add that earlier, @jackiebmsp told @bbclauramaxwell that she would wait until her party colleagues had seen and digested the report before they would consider next steps – as the Conservatives plan their vote of no confidence in the FM.
Speaking to reporters as she left home this morning, Nicola Sturgeon said that she wanted to “leave politics to others today”. She said, on the first anniversary of lockdown, her thoughts were with the almost 10,000 families in Scotland who have lost loved ones to coronavirus, and that she was focusing on getting the country through the pandemic. This is from Sky’s James Matthews.
