Part of the debate – in the Scottish Parliament on 9th September 2020.

Alert me about debates like this

The First Minister told Parliament on 20 August:

“we hope that from 14 September, wedding and civil partnership receptions ... will be able to take place with more attendees”—[

Official Report

, 20 August 2020; c 5.]

and that guidance would be issued “shortly.”

Does the cabinet secretary really think that it is acceptable that, days before 14 September and three weeks after that statement, we still have not seen any guidance? Couples will elope from Gretna Green to England to get married, instead of the other way around.
