On a point of order, Presiding Officer. I presume that such an important decision was made by the Cabinet. If that is the case, why did not the Cabinet Secretary for Economy, Jobs and Fair Work make the statement to the Parliament and take questions? Is it because the cabinet secretary does not believe a single word in the Government’s document?
3. To ask the Scottish Government when it will confirm whether there will be an inquiry into the policing of the 1984-85 miners’ strike in Scotland. (S5O-01307)
It is 10 months since I, union officials and former miners and their legal representatives met the cabinet secretary. The divisions and scars of that time still run deep in communities, so I urge him to reflect on all the evidence that has come out post-Hillsborough and to do the right thing by holding an inquiry into what I believe are historic miscarriages of justice.
