FIRST MINISTER TAKES QUESTIONS ON SHOCK RESIGNATION

The First Minister (Nicola Sturgeon): I think the conduct is unacceptable and I will not make any attempt to say otherwise or to minimise in any way its seriousness. Based on what I knew about this last night, it was clear to me then that Derek Mackay’s conduct fell far short of what is expected of a minister. Indeed, he offered his resignation to me and I accepted. It was not an option for him to remain in Government.
