Shona Robison, the Member of the Scottish Parliament for Dundee East, who is now the new public health minister for Scotland, denied that there was any risk to health for the Scots, from the bird flu outbreak in Wales, calling it “negligible”.
She said: “I want to reassure the public in Scotland that the risk to public health is negligible.”Tracings are ongoing but there is nothing to suggest any Scottish connections with events in Wales and England.”
People in Scotland and in the rest of the UK are wondering however, as to why she had to make that statement in the first place?
Did any one suggest that there WAS a Bird-Flu risk to the public health in Scotland?
Why deny a risk that was never there?
Very curious indeed Ms Robison!
