I know that the First Minister had a lot of ground to cover in her statement, but thousands of care home residents have had little or no meaningful contact with their loved ones since last March and the statement did not address their needs.

What hope can she give to people living in our care homes that they will see their relatives again? What must happen to allow indoor visits by dedicated care givers to take place? Is it one or two doses of the vaccine? If that is contingent on the roll-out of vaccinations, will she say when that will be complete in care homes?
