I agree with the First Minister on that point.

We know that the threat of the virus increases with the age of the individual, so is the First Minister considering reopening nurseries and primary schools earlier than secondary schools, after February?

The islands will remain in level 3 but their schools will close; what is the justification for that decision? Many islands do not have adequate broadband and will find remote learning quite difficult, so what provisions will be made available to them?
