MP vows to travel for work

Alister Jack in the Commons

MP Alister Jack has said he would like to see out lockdown in 'bonnie Galloway' but that he will travel to Westminster next week. Mr Jack was taking part in a virtual session of the Scottish Affairs Committee chaired by MP Pete Wishart. The session was mainly concerned with the divergence of approach between the Scottish and UK governments over the easing of lockdown. Mr Jack, MP for Dumfries and Galloway and Secretary of State for Scotland, said people in Scotland should, where possible, follow Holyrood's Stay At Home advice. He said that he personally would be travelling to the Commons next week in line with advice for key workers who cannot work from home. 'My place is at the despatch box,' he told Mr Wishart.
