Scottish Conservative Mid Scotland and Fife MSP, Liz Smith, has written to the chief executive of Perth and Kinross Council asking for farmers’ markets to be re-established as soon as possible in line with the Scottish Government advice published last week.
The term “liberal” in a political context has a variety of different meanings: in the US, it is generally taken as a description of someone on the left of politics, whilst in contrast we are more likely to use it to describe someone in the centre ground, writes Murdo Fraser in The Scotsman.
Scottish Conservative politicians are calling on the Scottish Government to give the green light to Perth and Kinross Council to allow them to re-open public toilets in the wake of demand from an influx of visitors.
In his latest Motion lodged at the Scottish Parliament Murdo has drawn attention to the good work of Asda stores in the Mid Scotland and Fife area and their part in donating the equivalent of more than 800,000 meals to charities and community groups.
Conservative politicians have said the Scottish Government needs to give Perth and Kinross Council “a fair deal” after it was revealed the local authority has a massive funding shortfall due to coping with Covid-19.
