Covid-19

Part of the debate – in the Scottish Parliament on 4th January 2021.

Alert me about debates like this

The First Minister:

Yes, we will make sure that there is provision of support for people in the shielding category if they need it, in terms of food or other supplies.

We had a hub-type arrangement that helped us to resolve issues to do with workers and employees during the first part of the pandemic. I will certainly take away the need for us to revitalise and re-establish that, because it is important that we help workers to navigate through those issues. I will ensure that, when we have worked out how exactly that will happen this time, we get that information to all MSPs as quickly as possible.
