THE Covid inquiry has revealed that the Sturgeon regime did not keep a record of meetings held during the Covid crisis. I am surprised that there is no outrage at this admission. Local sports clubs, let alone government institutions in normal countries, keep the minutes of meetings in an orderly manner. Why is the Scottish administration unable – or unwilling -to do so? It has at its disposal an army of civil servants, part of whose remit is undoubtedly record-keeping. And what do these civil servants think when they attend meetings and are not asked or permitted to take minutes? Is that not a dereliction of duty on their part? Jill Stephenson, Edinburgh.
