Chamber and committees

COVID-19 Recovery Committee

The Committee was established in June 2021. It focused on:

  • the Scottish Government’s response to COVID-19 and actions to recover from the pandemic
  • Government legislation introduced in response to the pandemic
  • legislation or policies aiming to help Scotland recover from the pandemic
  • how Government departments worked together to respond and recover from the pandemic

The Committee held its final meeting on 29 June 2023.  This followed a decision by the Parliament that it should be wound up.
