The First Minister:

Yes, we have. I assure the member that a voice in the Government regularly raises such points on behalf of people in Argyll and Bute. It is a serious and legitimate point, which we considered in this week’s review. Because we are confident that the situation in Argyll and Bute involves a workplace outbreak and there is not wider community transmission, we did not think it right to put it up a level. However, we also thought that the higher level of cases just for this week merited not opening up any more, but we will keep that under review in the weeks to come.
