Commenting on reports of the UK government’s mishandling of the Coronavirus crisis, Ian Blackford MP said:

“The reports of complacency and negligence around the UK government’s immediate response to the Coronavirus pandemic are jaw-dropping.

“We have been working constructively during this health emergency and we will continue to do so, however no government is above scrutiny.

“There are a number of legitimate questions that need to be put to the UK government around its handling of the Coronavirus pandemic.

“When Parliament returns next week, the SNP will stand ready to hold this government to account and prioritise the protection of the public, frontline services and businesses.”
