Point of Order

Jackie Baillie (Dumbarton) (Lab)

On a point of order, Presiding Officer. I am sure that members across the chamber will share my concern at the resignation of Lady Poole from the Scottish Covid inquiry. I welcome the information that was provided by the Deputy First Minister on a cross-party basis. What he failed to mention is that there appear to have been other resignations of senior counsel from the inquiry. Can the Presiding Officer consider, with the Parliamentary Bureau, the need for an urgent statement this week?

The Deputy Presiding Officer (Liam McArthur)

I thank Jackie Baillie for advance notice of her point of order. The matter that she raises is clearly of some significance, but it will be perhaps a matter for her business manager to raise with counterparts through the bureau.

There will be a brief pause before we move to the next item of business.
