Question ref. S6W-02588
Date lodged: 31 August 2021
To ask the Scottish Government on what dates it has met the UK Government to discuss the establishment of an inquiry on the handling of the COVID-19 pandemic; whether it will publish the minutes of these meetings, and on what dates future discussions or meetings are planned.
Current status: Answered by John Swinney on 14 September 2021
Scottish Ministers have kept the UK Government updated on our plans for a public inquiry on the handling of the COVID-19 pandemic, and look forward to receiving further details of the UK Government’s plans. These exchanges have been in the course of routine ongoing contact between the two governments on COVID-19, and not the subject of separate, minuted, meetings.
