- We need accessible and inclusive ways of working in our parliament and councils to allow those with caring responsibilities (largely women) to be able to fully participate. Thank you for highlighting this and thank you for your support of our campaign @GailRossSNP The Caithness, Sutherland and Easter Ross MSP Gail Ross is to stand down at the next election. She's found it difficult being away from her wee boy.
