Putin is not going to pause his war while the SNP iron out visa scheme

Responding to reports that the Scottish Government is to pause its super sponsor scheme for Ukrainian visas for three months, Scot Lib Dem deputy leader Wendy Chamberlain said:

"Vladimir Putin is not going to pause his assault on Ukraine for three months while Neil Gray and co iron out the bureaucratic kinks. This decision is going to put lives at risk.

"Scottish Liberal Democrats have been warning for months that the government's efforts to secure housing and vet hosts was woefully inadequate. Local authorities have been crying out for more help.

"This is another example of the Scottish Government prioritising grandstanding over getting the detail right. The people of Scotland have shown huge generosity, now we need our government to do their part."
