I am looking forward to our meeting too. We should be clear, just as we do not tolerate Islamaphobia or anti-Semitism, we will not tolerate anti-Catholicism -or any form of hatred - wherever and whenever it occurs.

Pete Wishart is being very supportive re problems sourcing enough pickers for soft fruit industry. Soft Fruit Production is worth £115 Million to the Scottish Economy but this will decline if labour problems continue.

The Tories were warned this would happen and they have done nothing to clear up a mess of their own making. There needs to be a clear route to encourage people to come from other countries to work here.

Thanks to all for inviting me to your summer camp today. I may have been eaten alive by midges but, on the upside, and I got our hands on some tablet. Enjoy the rest of the week.

Perthshire list Tory MSPs are behaving irresponsibly with their appalling scaremongering over the future of Perth Royal Infirmary. A&E has been secured and more operations will be carried out at PRI. You can't believe a word the Tories say on the NHS

Scotlands economic growth requires population growth. Our population growth requires continued inward migration. There is increasing consensus in Scotland on this, and so UKgov must adapt and recognise this.

For the benefit of list Tory MSPs. ‘Accident and emergency will remain open at Perth Royal Infirmary’. ‘Elective surgery will be expanded’. You can not believe a word the Tories say on the NHS.

Except that they're not. Perth Royal Infirmary will see an 'extended elective surgery service'. Also a guarantee on our A&E provision.
