S5W-07733: Neil Findlay (Lothian)

Scottish Labour

Date lodged: 6 March 2017

To ask the Scottish Government what impact it considers the resignation of two medical mesh-injured members of the Independent Review of Transvaginal Mesh Implants has had on the balance of the group.

Answered by: Shona Robison 17 March 2017

The resignation of the two members was unfortunate, has caused me concern, and I plan to meet with Ms McIlroy and Ms Holmes shortly in order to properly understand their reasons for resigning. I am, however, aware that Ms McIlroy and Ms Holmes have contributed much to the Review over the past three years and would hope that this is reflected in the Review’s final report.
