Earlier this week the First Minister gave a statement on Covid. Wish I didn't have to repeatedly demand answers for our overseas oil & gas workers on quarantine but if she won't give me the answer I want... I'm just going to keep asking!
“This morning I received yet another email from an overseas based oil and gas worker.
He feels trapped and says ‘I don't think mentally I can go through another 10 -day hotel quarantine.’
“Oil and gas workers are subject to some of the most rigorous Covid testing, have often been double jabbed and often haven’t left the installation.
“Yet they are forced to spend up to 10 days and three quarters of their wages in a hotel.
“To give absolute clarity, will the changes announced today now let our energy workers isolate at home or keep them isolated while they keep our lights on?”
I think there might... just might... be the suggestion we're getting somewhere but I shall continue to demand answers!
