FMQs: Douglas Ross misses after 'throat seized up', say Scottish Tories
Mr Ross was due to question Nicola Sturgeon in the weekly session on Thursday before taking ill, and was replaced by the party’s justice spokesman Jamie Greene.
It comes ahead of the party’s conference in Aberdeen this weekend, with a Tory spokesman saying Mr Ross will deliver a shortened version of his address.
Mr Ross has taken a number of Covid-19 tests, but all have come back negative.
“He has taken Covid tests each day, all of which have come back negative.
“Douglas will still be appearing at the Scottish Conservative conference on Friday for the Prime Minister’s speech, and he will be delivering a slightly shortened version of his keynote address on Saturday.”
