Two years ago, the Health and Sport Committee suggested to Scottish National Party ministers that a review could take place, which would give Parliament appropriate time to progress any legislative change. Given that ministers are only today announcing the review, any legislation will potentially be included only in the final programme for government ahead of 2021, which will lead to rushed legislation. Will the minister, at the earliest opportunity, set out to Parliament a timetable progressing the legislation through Parliament?
