Bishop attacked over schools history changes
Church of Scotland chief executive Peter Saunders has said the Holyrood election could see a return to Holyrood’s past attempts to change how schools are run.
In a statement after the election, Mr Saunders said: “These are very difficult years for the Holyrood political leadership.”
He said Holyrood now had a “strong mandate” to “build a stronger economy for all communities” and vowed that there will be no “slapping back of changes to Holyrood’s law”.
Bishop of York, Paul Farquharson, has described an election win as “the end of the road” for the past seven years of reform in Scotland.
He had claimed the current plan for Holyrood’s future was “broken”.
Mr Farquharson told broadcaster RTÉ’s Today there was no “slapping back of changes” to Holyrood’s law.
But he said the Holyrood election would help to ensure that reforms such as universal free schools, which are seen as a priority by Mr Farquharson and some of the church’s leading figures, were continued.
Speaking ahead of the general election, Mr Farquharson said Holyrood “needs to move to the fro영천출장안마태국 마사지nt of더나인카지노 the game김해출장마사지 김해출장안마 in order to help Scotland improve in terms of education and in terms of jobs”.
Asked if he felt a new Holyrood election would mean the election of a new leader in a post dominated by the Scottish National Party, Mr Farquharson said: “No, I don’t”.
