Commenting Mr Hendry Said:
“If my mailbox is anything to go by, nobody was fooled by Mr Cummings performance last night.
“Hundreds of constituents have been in touch to share their anger at the Prime Minister’s handling of this situation and emails continue to come in thick and fast today.
“People have had enough of ridiculous spin and tall tales – and they are right to be outraged.
“It should be unimaginable that any Government would place protecting an advisors’ career above public health and public confidence amid a health and economic crisis.
“This cannot be allowed to continue and my SNP colleagues and I will keep up pressure on Mr Johnson and this failing Government to take action.
“Most worryingly, police in England are already reporting people citing Mr Cummings as a reason to break the current restrictions.
“It’s important to stress, here in Scotland, the clear public health advice has not changed.
“The Scottish Government will review the current rules on Thursday, and hopefully, this will lead to a gradual easing of some restrictions, evidence permitting.
“I also want to take the opportunity to thank my constituents for their efforts to stay at home and for the sacrifices they and their loved ones have made – it is helping to save lives.”
