SNP disgracefully leave the front bench un-occupied twice in a week

  • Kristy Ellis
The SNP have disgracefully left the front bench empty twice in the last week.

On the 7th November the Presiding Officer had to point out that the Scottish National Party (SNP) had briefly left the front bench empty.

Fergus Ewing had to rush forward to take control. Fergus Ewing closed for the government.

Two days later the SNP show their contempt for process by leaving the front bench un-occuped once again. Philip Sim @BBCPhilipSim tweeted that the Presiding Officer had to 'tick them off' for the second time in a week.

In this case Clare Adamson took the helm.
