What A Waste Of Public Money
The Scottish Govt has struck a £250k contract with a top law firm to prepare statements for the Scottish & UK Covid public inquiries on "key decisions" made during the pandemic.

The Scottish Government is awash with highly paid spin doctors, special advisers and lawyers - yet ignores all this in-house expertise and commissions an external law firm to handle its response to the Covid pandemic at a cost of at least £250,000.
What a waste of public money!
