Tavish Scott to leave Holyrood

Comment from Jamie Halcro Johnston MSP on Tavish Scott MSP’s resignation announcement.

“I’d like to wish Tavish Scott all the very best as he leaves the Scottish Parliament after twenty years serving as MSP for Shetland, and formerly as Leader of the Scottish Liberal Democrats.

“As a former adviser to Highlands and Islands MSPs and as an MSP for the region now myself, I have seen first-hand Tavish’s commitment to standing up for local communities in Shetland, and his wider contribution to political and public life in Scotland.

“His geniality, compassion and resolve will be missed both in Shetland and at Holyrood, and I wish him well in his new role and wherever the future takes him.”
