In the short term, the Committee’s work programme is now focussed on Covid-19. We aim to scrutinise the actions of the Scottish Government in its response to the COVID-19 public health emergency in areas within our remit, and in its support for the local government and voluntary sectors. We also aim to provide a forum to share good practice in addressing the challenges the emergency raises. As part of this work we will look at actions taken by local government, housing, planning and communities sectors. We had remote informal discussions on 22 April, 29 April and 6 May to discuss future business. Since then we have been able to resume formal meetings, including broadcast evidence sessions, through remote video-conferencing. Any correspondence relevant to our work on Covid-19 is published here.
