Interesting session today, starting with Ruth Davidson’s education questions on the restriction of curriculum subjects for students wishing to study for A level/Higher exams, she managed to make a mark in FM’s armour.
Richard Leonard brought up the non appearance of an audit on Mental Health provision for children, only to be told that it was being published on 13th June, maybe Richard should have done his homework before asking the question.
Patrick Harvey was upset that the 50,000 houses promised by Scottish Government were not all new build.
Willy Rennie waffled on with statistics about waiting times for NHS Adult Mental Health services.
Quite a lot of constituency questions on NHS Mental health services. Also questions on STV job losses, UK Withdrawal Bill, LGBT issues and Universal Credit.
Last two questions were from Murdo Fraser and John Finnie, these were about votes for prisoners, Fraser against, Finnie in favour. First Minister was stuck in the middle with some prisoners getting the vote.
