On 1 December, I asked the First Minister to reconsider allowing only up to six people from two households to meet in their homes in level 1 areas. Today, she has eased the restriction for some islands, but not the mainland. I have written to her twice asking for Moray and the Highlands to be included, and the leader of Highland Council has publicly backed my call. Given that the Highlands and Moray continue to have very low numbers of cases and are rightly at level 1, when does the First Minister think the “no household visits” rule will be relaxed?
